Masks of Nepal

International Academy students learned about the culture of Nepal and created these vibrant watercolor masks. We began by drawing out a symmetrical mask in pencil. Masks of Nepal typically have a third eye, sharp teeth and a decorative crown. Students painted these using bright colors and some color blending. The final step was to outline all the edges. These masks are usually used in ceremonies and are hung in the temples when not in use. Students really enjoyed the ferocious look of these masks and they have received many compliments while on display.
