This one-day workshop will include making a mold of your face with plaster bandages and short lessons on hand-making paper, plus handouts with information about each process.
McKinney will also share ideas for some finishing touches using your own creativity and embellishments you may already have. The masks are unique pieces of art — appropriate for display on the wall or table rather than for wearing.
The class is held from 2 to 4 p.m. Space is limited to eight students. The fee is $25 per person. Instruction, hand-outs and some materials are provided.
Students will need to bring the following supplies to the class: medium-sized plastic bowl or pan; head scarf or head band to keep hair away from face; wash cloth, towel and soap to remove the residues from your face; hair dryer if you have one — if not, we will share; a bag or container to place your mask in after class; and scissors.
To register stop by Art on the Divide, 6295 Main St. in Georgetown, or call 530-333-ARTS (2787) or McKinney at 530-644-4904.
Art gallery hours are Friday through Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
The class is funded in part by El Dorado County’s Cultural and Community Development Program.
