HANDS-ON HOUSTON: MAGNIFICENT MASKS

Time
Saturday, January 6, 2018 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm
Location
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
4848 Main St. (Map)

This month, join HCCC as we create weird and wonderful masks, inspired by our current exhibition, Head Gear.  Masks are a way to explore different identities and transport ourselves to unfamiliar, wild places. Use your imagination, and transform yourself into a bird, a beast, or other fantastic creature using cardboard and paint.  Discover the many meanings of masks in different cultures and their importance in connecting our present with the past.

Note: Please allow 25 minutes to complete this activity. The activity will take place outdoors and is on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.

HANDS-ON HOUSTON is a free drop-in event held the first Saturday of every month. Each month, a teaching artist demonstrates a craft related to the current exhibitions. Families and children of all ages are welcome to come any time between 11 AM and 3 PM and participate in a 15 – 20 minute activity. Materials are provided. This program supports HCCC’s mission to advance education about the process, product, and history of craft. Learn more here.
