Awesome Maché-ing Mask Making and Paper Clackers to make!

Great job with power paper-maché!! We will have great bases  to build our masks from next week.

Here is a link to the instructions for our "Chompers"... it's a Youtube made by kids for kids!
Our "Chompers" are great puppets - we used 60lb card stock. They make great sounds when they chomp, are great at picking things up...and sometimes eat things as well! We enjoyed making up games and ways for our beaks to speak and play - it was very mechanical fun! 

Thanks for a fun and messy studio--still peeling the glue off my hands ;) --we'll build up features and attach handles to our masks next Wednesday.

Tamara Clammer’s Swan Lake Headdresses : Our first session for Fall 2013
 It was a lot of work getting the studio ready for new, and returning friends.  Thank you for messing it right up again in the best way with painting and pencil shavings and your work on the walls!  We are a small group but perhaps more friends can join us soon!

We worked on mismatched creatures - drawing from our imagination and nature books, then took our ideas to canvas and acrylic paint - which we'll finish next week. I see some really interesting starts to(inspiration for) our masks/creature characters in our paintings! We also talked about 'performances': and we decided we want to tell stories...and that our stories will be creative inventions even if they refer to stories we already know,that they can no sense, but that our stories will help us to create character masks that will  help tell them...and that we will figure out how to collaborate (work together) on that.

It was a fun first studio for this Fall - Thanks for your enthusiasm!
