Paper Mache Masks: 2nd Grade

I discussed themes & inspirations with the students before they began painting their paper mache masks(students created the paper mache the previous week).  I allowed them to select 4 colors (and told them they could create colors from the 4 the selected if they wanted to).  There is something fun/whimsical about the masks. I'm looking forward to the rest of the week's work.  


  1. This is a really cool project! What form did you build the masks on? I have done plaster gauze directly onto students faces before (what a fun messy day that always is!) but never with paper mache.

  2. The first one makes me think of the movie 'the mask':)
    Lovely colors!
