Upcycled Art children’s mask making workshop set

| March 29, 2014

COSHOCTON – Children ages 7–12 are invited to a mask making workshop at the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, April 6.

Finding inspiration from the museum’s current special exhibit, Teen-Age Talent, students will borrow its theme — Upcycled Art — for their own work. (Upcycled art is simply artwork made from found or discarded objects.) For thousands of years people have made masks. Some are worn over the face but others, like the ones that will be made in this class, were made to adorn walls or building structures. For this project students will begin with a plank of wood or square of linoleum that will be painted before the mask features are added. Participants should bring objects from home that can supplement the museum’s supply.

Supply cost is $5. Register by Thursday, April 3, by calling the museum at 622-8710 or e-mail at [email protected]. Office hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The museum is located in Roscoe Village at 300 N. Whitewoman St.

Upcycled Art Children’s Mask Making Workshop is sponsored by Oxford Resource Partners and the Ohio Arts Council, which helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
