This week, Yr 7 & 8 drama students were given the task of designing their own mask, and creating and developing a character through their creation. Students can make the character however they wish...happy, sad, angry, funny, serious, weird. Once the masks have been completed they must spend time in front of the mirror working on the character. Focus is on the the movement of the whole body as facial expressions are not an option.
And here is a couple of messages from students sent to me.
