Masks of the World Webquest
1. Begin by going to the following web address
   There are 2 purposes for this activity
   1. To find out how and why cultures use masks

   You will have 2 class periods to complete this
      webquest. At the end you should have your
      spidermap and your investigation of masks from
      around the world worksheet.
   This is to be completed in groups no larger than 3 (no
          Outline for your mask project
1. Before you begin you must select one culture and then
one mask that you find particularly interesting and print a
picture. This has to be from a culture that is not North

2. Now you will begin planning your mask in your

3. From this you are asked to replicate its form but to change
its meaning. This meaning you must interpret from a 2D
image (photograph or digital image) into a 3D form.

4. You are then requested to identify a contemporary issue
and work this onto the mask through the use of symbols,
icons, text, messages, etc
Here are some contemporary issues that you may consider:

Racism, power and aggression, mental abuse, peace, bush
fires, water restrictions and drought, etc. You are
encouraged strongly to choose an issue you feel strongly

Consider how you will add meaning to your mask. This
may be done through the use of embellishment. Beads,
plastic, cloth, recycled material, really anything that you
think will strengthen your mask’s purpose/message.

1. Did students create a mask showing characteristics a selected
culture? Did they use exaggeration, distortion, simplification of
forms - concentric shapes? /25
2. Did students integrate planning into the creation of a plaster
mask using appropriate strip length and smoothing of rough edges?
Show an understanding of forming techniques? /15
3. Did students explore a variety of media in the completion of their
plaster mask? Exhibit craftsmanship? Does the decoration help
convey meaning? Does mask express a social issue? /25
4. Did students successfully critique and write about the meaning of
their mask for display? /10
5. In class process and studio maintenence. /25
