Paper Bag Monster Masks

In Art class, 6th Grade students created Paper Bag Monster Masks based on an emotion as a means of getting in touch with their feelings. Students also looked at artist, Susan Farrington’s whimsical and fun monster-like illustrations for inspiration. Here is a sampling of student innovative mask-making. Check out the Post-It Exit Ticket: Emotion Wall, too.
