Tech Team Mask Making
During a 2-hour time slot, teams of four (4) students produce and bring to life a theatrically-based design for masks based on a show-specific prompt.
Students will need to provide their own materials, ranging from hot-glue guns and glue sticks to glitter to fabric to feathers, and all points in-between!
Only one team per school.
The play selected for you to design WILL BE REVEALED AT THE CONTEST.
DO NOT TELL THE PLAY TITLE SELECTION TO OTHERS. Other troupes may be designing at a later time - don't give them an advantage over you!
IMPORTANT: PLEASE MAKE SURE TO WRITE YOUR CONCEPT STATEMENT ON THE BACK OF YOUR MASK RENDERINGS.
Designs are judged on the following criteria:DESIGN ELEMENTS: Are the elements of design utilized to create a complete cohesive mask?
MASK CONSTRUCTION: Was there a complete mask constructed on the mask form that displayed knowledge of how masks are constructed?
COMPONENTS OF DESIGN PROCESS: Was there a concept statement for the designs, renderings (2) and a mask present on the armature at the end of the preparation time?
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Does the design and constructed mask meet the needs of the play and the vision described in the concept?
