Incorporating African-American heritage month and three-dimensional art activities, Halifax Community College's EDU 151 Creative Activities class recently handmade several African masks. Students made the masks after viewing a video on African culture and art, with particular emphasis on African ceremonial masks. They also researched Web sites for information, then designed and crafted their own masks.
