Crossett High School’s Art I class created tribal masks for its 3-D project.
Art teacher Jacqueline Hennington said the class does the project every year. The students started planning the masks in December.
Senior Beth Jennings said that she started her tribal mask with cardboard and then proceeded to use tinfoil for the 3-D areas. She used paper mache and put the base paint on. After she finished the base paint, she then put on the decorative painting and added embellishments such as jewels.
“One thing I learned from this project is that not everything has to be perfect,” she said.
Jennings also said that her favorite part of this project was painting the mask.
The tribal masks are currently being displayed in the school foyer with numbers on them so that the staff and Art II and Art III classes can vote on them.
The winners will be announced during E.A.G.L.E Time Jan. 30.
