Year 6 RawArt - Grecian Gods


What delight was in store for us! Year 6 have participated in their Raw Art program for 2015. We were lucky to be able to create Grecian Masks from clay.

The origins of these masks date back to the Ancient Greek civilisation, where they were worn in theatrical performances. From our ball of clay we created an oval shape and then traced an outline of a side on profile of a face. We used a variety of techniques to ensure the details added onto the face outline, stayed there when the clay dried. A touch of colour was added to our masterpieces, followed by a glaze of P.V.A. glue. We thoroughly enjoyed this session and even surprised ourselves with our artistic talent!
