Kindergarten Paper Mask line, pattern Objective The student will learn how masks have been used throughout history for a wide variety of purposes. The student will create their own mask using paper and concentrate on the art elements - line and shape - and use symmetrical balance. Materials –sheet of (any) color paper 12x9 –pencil –eraser –scissors –glue sticks (and/or) Elmers –variety of colored paper –colored paper scraps (in a box in the art room) ★ Make sure the students put their name and date on every project!
CHINESE CEREMONIAL MASK used to express and explore emotions, to contact a spiritual world through ritual performances
CARNIVAL MASK used in celebration to attract other people and hide your identity
PERFORMANCE MASK Part of a costume such as an animal mask to portray a lion. Special meaning or special uses. The voice of its wearer could be projected into a large auditorium.
four basic shapes of eyes 1. The slit. A single line drawn a bit upwards. 2. Almond eye. Go to a point at each end. There are two examples. 3. Pointed end & open center. Lines are wide apart at the center and close together at the end. 4. Open end and pointed center. Wide at the ends and pointed near the center.
Procedure (print this page and the next two pages to teach from) Step 1: Begin by asking the children to tell you what a mask is and why they might wear one. Step 2: (slide 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) Show the different mask, one at a time, and discuss how cultures throughout history have made mask for various reasons. Some mask are made for tribal rituals, some are made for protection and some are made for festivities. Point out the different types of shapes and lines used on each mask. Mask are typically made to make you look like someone or something other than yourself. Step 3: Today we will make a paper mask to use simply as an art object and we will focus on the art elements shape and line to create it. Take a 9 x 12 piece of colored paper to use as a background (the main Color) of your mask. (slide 7) Look at the examples of the different shapes used for eyes. Have the children name different types of shapes they might cut out for their eyes. Encourage them to work large. Using scrap pieces or smaller sheets lets begin by cutting out the eyes. We want two shapes for the eyes (you may use more but need at least two). Glue the eyes down when you have all of your pieces cut out.
Step 4: (slide 7) Next, think of either a shape or line you could use for a nose and the mouth. Look at the examples of the masks on slides 2-6 for ideas. Glue the nose down cut out a shape or line (or several lines) for a mouth and glue it down. Step 5: Once you have your eyes, nose and mouth glued down, draw the outline shape of the mask - the jaw,forehead and sides. Cut out a jaw line below and around the mouth. Then cut above the eyes for the forehead. Complete your mask by adding ears, eyebrows and hair or other decorative shapes to make it colorful and exciting. Conclusion: After you have finished the mask have the children find all the mask that have squares and point to them, next find circles, rectangles, triangle and lines helping them to focus on the specific art elements used to build the mask. Display and share the work for everyone to enjoy.
