Artist in Residency
ACHF Arts Access ACHF Arts Education ACHF Cultural Heritage
Upon the completion of this residency each child will have created a mask that is reflective of an animal, a special character from the movies, television or from literature. In going through the creation of these masks the students will learn how clay can be utilized in a number of ways to create their masks. These masks will then be painted and pieces of cloth will be added to bring them alive. The final result will be in a short skit that will take place on the final day of the residency. Malia along with each of the four teachers in this workshop will keep a log of how the students in each class create their masks. The art teacher, Lauren Pattersen, will also be cooperating in this effort. We are especially trying to encourage each student to be creative as they make their own masks. This residency also brings together a very special component as many of the students come from 14 different ethnic backgrounds and these cultural differences will be reflected in these masks.
The students in this project created a number of hand puppets from basic art materials. These puppets were of many types. The students were asked to be as creative as possible and the end result was quite wonderful. The basic evaluation was that students were asked to create hand puppets and they did. At the final program they took the puppets and did a number of different skits. To see the many students from different ethnic groups working together was tremendous.
