"Magic Masks" Mr. Todd's third grade, Guest Artist Michelle Sharp

Sharp is the guest artist for Mr. Todd’s 3rd grade class. Michelle taught the children about how magical and mysterious masks can be. These masks each have a story about how you would be changed if you were to wear one of them. You can read those stories in the binder located on the counter.

The children created these masks in a multi-step collaboration with Michelle. First, the students used newspaper and tape to sculpt their masks, then layers of plaster were added. Next, the children applied gesso and then layers of acrylic paint. The masks are finished with a layer of gloss varnish and displayed proudly for you to see!

Michelle’s amazing sculpture is located at the foot of this display and is available through our online auction site on: www.ebay.com search for “Lockeland Art Auction”
