For today’s creative project, let’s create a theatrical mask, either based on one of your favorite characters from a story, book or movie, or a character you invent! Follow the instructions below, and make sure to send us pictures of your final creation to firstname.lastname@example.org or tag us on social media @stagelightarts.
1. Use found materials in the house. Get creative!
2. Try to make eye holes (they can be as small as a pea or as big as an eye). Find some string or elastic for wearing the mask if you can.
3. Use crayons, markers, stickers, craft supplies… whatever you can! Add as much detail as possible. Be creative. Have fun with it!
4. Now, don your mask, act out or improvise a scene, and take a bow! Don’t forget to send us pictures of your creation so we can see you progress during these Home Activities!
