Masks and identity in Irvine

By making masks out of plaster, clay and papier-mache our participants in Irvine have been learning how to express themselves by making physical objects.

Visual arts tutor Ruth Switalski told us the young people quickly embraced the creative processes, quickly grasping the concept of the mask that we all wear in our everyday lives and creating these objects as an interpretation of these ideas. It is nice to see these young people take on these weighty subjects and create such nice art pieces.
