Animal Human Masks 

Sixth grade students created these miniature plaster masks as a study of human and animal features.  We learned about basic human facial proportion and then discussed the idea of personification.  Rather than personifying an animal though, we instead gave animal features to a human.  Students used a small human face mold and plaster gauze to sculpt a basic human shape form.  They then added additional features that would turn their human into an animal (or a composite animal).  Their creativity is demonstrated in their ability to morph the human face into a variety of different animals.
