Learn about the rich history of African culture by creating a traditional African tribal mask. It will look authentic when you create a wood grain texture using Crayola Color Sticks.
African tribal masks are an important part of traditional African culture. They have a spiritual or religious meaning and are used during traditional African ceremonies. Have students gather some pictures of African Tribal masks from the internet or books to use as a reference.
MAKE RUBBING PLATES
Have students cut several pieces of poster board into medium-size pieces about 4 x 10 inches (10 x 25 cm)with Crayola Scissors.
Students print a wood grain pattern from the computer or copy from a book. Cut out the wood grain pattern with scissors and glue onto a piece of cut poster board. Trace over the lines in the wood grain pattern with Crayola School Glue and air-dry completely overnight.
MAKE TEXTURED WOOD GRAIN DESIGNS
Students use the flat side of a Color Stick to color a piece of construction paper with several lighter shades of brown. Place the colored construction paper on top of the rubbing plate and use the flat side of a dark brown color stick to rub over the paper until the wood grain image appears. Have students fill several sheets of construction paper with wood grain rubbings.
Students carefully cut a piece of cardboard into a large circle.
Lay the wood grain rubbings side by side and glue them into one long sheet by overlapping the edges about 1 inch (2.5 cm).
Cut the wood grain paper to fit onto the cardboard circle. Depending on the size of the cardboard, students may need to piece together several pieces to cover the cardboard. Glue the wood grain paper to the cardboard with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Have students use Color Sticks to color over the wood grain rubbings to create a traditional African Tribal mask design.
