After-school Art Classes Info

An 8-week programme led by tutor Karyn Moon, with guest appearance in session 1 from local textile artist Jean Carbon.

The theme for Term 3 is Masks – students will work towards creating a mask of their own design.  Students will learn about masks – in stories, from different cultures, made of different materials, and for different purposes

Students will plan and create a mood board – this is a great way to organise disparate elements to produce a single response.  Elements will include colour, fabric, collage and perhaps even paper mache techniques! Students will think about how to incorporate each of these elements in a cohesive way and then create a design.

To go along with their finished design students will let their imaginations run wild to create a description of this mask and what it is to be used for – perhaps they will create a mask for the theatre, or perhaps a ceremonial mask from an alien world!

To create the mask students will learn how to evenly roll out the clay to the thickness they desire using a rolling pin and 2 wooden guide sticks. They will then create the mask shape using supports to keep the desired shape.  Clay coils will be added using scoring and slip in order to create features.  After bisque firing coloured glazes will be applied working from their prototype mask designs before final glaze firing takes place.
