Brookfield sixth-graders create clay masks
Brookfield sixth-graders in Linda Bain’s art class created clay masks of animals or humans inspired by other cultures. They added textures and raised features, such as eyes, nose and mouth. They also painted the masks and added glaze before they were fired in a kiln. Finished masks were displayed in the classroom. Above, Mrs. Bain instructs students on how to build up the clay to add dramatic features. Below are Tara Thompson, left, and Charles Nicholson, who are adding texture to their masks.
