Totem masks V4

Carrie's lesson 9-11 yr olds 'maths and art collide'

I have done this lesson a few times and it's always well received. The project starts with a reflected name or word (symmetry) and this is extended and exaggerated into a mask design, looking at North American Native designs to help with pattern and detail. I gave them few limits with colour, other than being bold and bright to contrast with vivid line work at the end. Everyone was very happy with the results and the Totems are now on display in the hall.
