Centennial students in Mr. Hanssen’s Art II and Art II GT classes have begun making masks. The masks, when finished, will be an expression of their individual cultural identities both on the outside and inside. The masks are made by putting paper mache over the students’ faces to recreate their faces. Once the masks have dried, the students will decorate the inside of the mask and outside separately.

Mr. Hanssen said, “[the mask] is what you see on the outside and what you are on the inside.” Hanssen also said the masks are expected to be finished in three weeks, if not, by the end of the quarter.
