3-D Art

The Animal I AM

da Vinci Arts Middle School 3-D Art students chose an animal they most closely identify with and used their own face to make a plaster mask of those animals. Students were challenged to create a mask that both represents an aspect of their own identity, as well as embodies a connection between themselves and an animal that shares our home in the Pacific Northwest. They painted the masks and wrote stories from the imagined perspective of their chosen animal. Then we went outside and students posed as their chosen animal while wearing the mask.

Here a few of the portraits of students posing while wearing their masks. The masks, stories, and photographs will be in the gallery for an exhibit in February.
