This session focuses on identity exploration using the ancient cultural art of mask making. Participants are given the opportunity to create their own mask as a form of reflective expression. A variety of materials are provided to enhance a human mask form, based around a thought provoking prompt such as, “uncovered; the face behind the mask.”
