Making a mask task

Make a 3D mask to be handed in to your first lesson back after half term.

It can be any culture you like. Think about your choice of colours – only use glitter if that is appropriate to the culture you have chosen. Look for ideas on the internet. I have set up a Pinterest board to help with ideas.

See me at a lunchtime for idea or materials before half term if you need.


There will be a prize for the most effort and outstanding work.

Y7 African Mask Moodboard

Create a moodboard showing different African masks.

Create a background (coffee or mud would work too). Print out pics of African masks, cut out and glue on top. You could draw from some masks too or draw patterns in the gaps. Keep the colours in line with the African masks you have found.

Food Photography

Take some photographs of food. Think about healthy and unhealthy combinations, such as brussel sprouts coming out of a biscuit package, an orange with a choc orange slice. Vegetable kebab with a marshmallow on it. You can take pics on phones and bring them that way or on a camera (at own risk – can be delivered to Art in am and collected at the end of the day). Even better print the pics – easier to draw from anyway. Pics can also be emailed to me to print –

Please see me if this is difficult and I will help at school instead.

There is a prize for the best photo – do think about rules of composition that we covered a few lessons ago.

Shading sphere

Use the sheet provided to help draw a sphere – use tone carefully to add shading, including a cast shadow.

For an extra challenge, try a cone, cylinder or a cube as well.
