Wow, this is an amazing resource for both art educators and language arts educators alike. As the former, I was looking for a more structured way for my students to research a culture of their choice and use that research to inform their artistic process (creating a mask inspired by their research). I love the creative writing/poem component and am going to try that instead of having them write an article. Thank you so much for sharing and keeping this resource open to all instead of putting it up on a place like Teachers pay Teachers. I am truly grateful!

THis is such a thoughtful and thought provoking lesson plan. I am excited to explore the art and poetry of masks with my daughter's class. Thanks so much to Judi and Diane!
