2nd Grade Paper Mask Sculpture

This is an annual project for my 2nd graders. It's always a big hit and I love the results.

Day Two: Adding the eyes, eyelashes, eyebrows and mouth...


I did a three layer color requirement for the eyes. We discussed contrasting colors...

Day Three: Hair!
I demonstrated these five paper scuplture techniques for hair...
