Plaster = Popular

Young artists love making a mess, and love using their hands to make their art. It's no surprise that plaster is always a huge hit!  This week Grade 3 got to explore the powdery gooey-ness of plaster in creating masks using plastic molds. Ironically, two of our students are currently wearing arm casts- make the realistic applicability and usefulness of plaster all the more relevant!  

We learned that When Marcos got his first cast, they used 7-9 layers of plaster bandage. His second cast received 4 layers. We used 2-3 layers to create our masks and will begin painting and designing them in the coming art classes.
