DESIGNER FACE MASKS – Colour, Shape, Balance

Students pretend they are designers who have to create a face mask that suits their client. They use a questionnaire to find out about their client and base their design on what they have learned. After brainstorming a variety of ideas they use coloured pencils, markers or other media to create a final version of their design. Then they write an artist statement to explain their ideas to their client.
