After putting together a power point presentation about African Masks and showing with pictures "How" to paint the rocks, the kids went to work.
These rocks are bigger than the size of a sixth grade hand. The students first drew around the rocks and then sketched on paper what their mask would look like. We talked about symmetry and where the eyes should be placed. We also talked about colors and how to create different designs. Once painted and dry they were sprayed with a clear sealer.
Some got it
Some did not
These are children who do not necessarily want to be at school at 5:00 pm
It is hard to keep their attention
Some just do the projects to humor me.
This is the hardest part of the job.
Does Anyone teach kids who do not want to be in art class? Any ideas????
