Today’s art class uses cardboard and paper to make some beautiful folk art. We’re making masks out of materials that might otherwise end up in a landfill.

You can design this mask to be a self portrait, to look like someone you know, or go crazy and pull a face directly from your imagination! Just have tons of fun making a beautiful decoration from reusable materials.

You can see examples of masks from different cultures around the world at Examples of my completed masks can be found below and at the Supplemental Materials page.

The materials needed for this class are:

  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Other cardboard or paper products
    • Egg cartons
    • Food packaging boxes
    • Packing material
    • Paper bags
  • Scissors
  • White glue

Practice, practice, practice!
