This year our art cultural focus is Asia. Fifth grade kids created these Chinese Opera Masks! Chinese Opera masks are traditionally painted on to the actors' faces. The colors on the masks are symbolic of character traits which tells the audience something about the characters before they even speak!
After looking at these masks students created a list of common characteristics so that they would know how to make a mask in this style:
Learning Goals: I can...
