Death Mask Design
The class have been combining their History topic with Art. We have looked further into why the Egyptians had Death Masks as part of their burial ritual and the children designed their own. Of course they look far better than King Tutankhamun's!
This week was stage one where we had to cut out the shape of the mask and then paper mache the face mask on. It might have been messy but it was great fun. Today we did part two and painted and undercoat of Gold onto the masks.
