Multicultural Masks and Aztec Relief Carving Workshop

701 Center for Contemporary Art offers a Multicultural Masks and Aztec Relief Carving Workshop June 25 – 29 for ages 13 – 17.  Students will explore different cultures throughout the world to find inspiration to create a unique mask. Students will mix, carve, and stain their decorative masks using Plaster of Paris, among other materials. Specifically, students will look at how the Aztecs used relief carving in their own culture. Each student will create their own relief carving of various size based on their own individual design. Instructor Sean Lafaye has taught art at both the elementary and middle school level for the past 14 years. He currently teaches art at Carolina Springs Middle School and has taught at both summer camps at the Columbia Museum of Art. Members: $105; non-members: $120.
