Masks-3rd grade

I LOOOOVE the 3rd grade mask unit. Even the most hesitant artist finds themselves kinda into the masks. They are so expressive, and even the ugly ones are kinda cute. We made a paper echo mask (functional) and a clay mask (decorative). This unit is not only fun, it forces students to review a lot of their previously taught skills, and is a great way for me to talk about contrast of colors with them.
