In this learning scenario, students explore the art of making masks through Europeana Collections and creative assignments. They research, sketch and recreate some of the drawings. Oral presentation and, possibly, the exhibition is the final product of the lesson. During the presentation, students describe the details and characteristics of historical masks connecting it to their personal experiences when creating artworks.
This learning scenario has been developed during the English version of the “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage (Rerun)” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
