MASK DECORATING FUN! An activity for all ages…

The mask is an ancient cover for the face which hides the true nature of the individual. For Mardi Gras, it hides the sinner, and at Halloween, it hides the wearer from evil spirits. In psychology, the mask is the superficial persona that hides the true self. So, show the mask, or show what hides behind the mask. Either way, this is your opportunity to be creative and join in the Masquerade.

Participating Artists:

Tina Alvarez, Juan Cantavella, Sharon Giles, Mary Moreno, Susan Murray, Rebecca Prince, Jaminet Rivera, and Stephen Schlarb.
