Class 10 returned from our fantastic trip to the Horniman Museum, inspired by the many splendid masks that we were able to see. As part of our GCSE entry level in Art and Design, we have been using the knowledge and ideas from the Horniman trip to help produce our own Class 10 masks. We started off working with 2D designs. The pupils experimented to see how only two tones of colour could produce an effective image.
We then extended this work to work in a 3D dimension. Using everyday materials that we usually throw out at home, the pupils produced some amazing re-cycled facemasks! Our final component in this topic was to create a series of clay masks. These have now been painted, and are ready for the final stage of firing these up to give a hardened, glazy look. We are proud to present a series of images, showcasing our brilliant Class 10 masks in the photo gallery below.
