Aboriginal Art Masks ~ School ~

Approximately 200 Aboriginal Art masks made by year 8's dried and fired. The masks were taken from drawings in sketchbooks and designed by the year eights and here are their creations. Symbols and textures have been used based on the Art of the Aboriginal People.

The clay rollers and stamps that I made for the school children to use in this project.

  1. They are excellent. Some are a bit scary too!!

  2. I think there might be some other influences at play here. Definitely some scary ones!

  3. These are all very them :) I remember when I did something like this at school and thinking this is fun...I think we did pirate faces!
