MASKS OF THE WORLD
(art, French, social studies, religion, theatre)
These four workshops are all separate and distinct, they come from the four corners of the world!

- Noh (Japan)
Noh is a dramatic art that has existed in Japan for hundreds of years. Students will make full face plaster masks, using one partner as the model, and will decorate these masks in the style of a traditional Noh character. 

- Commedia dell’Arte (Italy)
Students will start with half-masks made of plastic and cover them with bands of paper soaked glue. While the masks are drying, they will work together to create and rehearse a short play they can perform together.

- African Masks
Students will learn the rituals and beliefs surrounding these masks and will have the opportunity to make their own masks. They may decorate the masks to emulate the styles of different regions.

- Spirit Masks (Inuit)
The masks and puppets made by Inuit people have always been full of meaningful symbols. To design their own masks, students will choose symbols and experiences that have been important in their lives.

OTHERS

- Puppets and theatre (art, French, science, social studies)
Students will conceive the outline of a story and will choose the characters. They will make puppets out of a sculptable polymer clay and write the dialogue for a play.

- Hand Made Paper (art, French, science, social studies)
Students will learn about making paper in order to create two or three projects. They will create a paper sculpture using paper pulp on twisted wire.

- Inuit Art (art, French, science, social studies)
Inuit soap stone sculptures are world renown. Students will learn the basic technique using soap bars to create a sculpture imitating the Inuit style. They will also make an inukshuk out of clay.

- Canadian Aboriginal Art (art, French, science, social studies)
Students will create a drawing of a totem with watercolour pencils, they will use cardboard and paper strips to create masks, and they will also decorate a small bag made of leather with beadwork.
