Exploring China...

Taking in the sights and sounds of China at the Field Museum in Chicago...



Just recently, a new hall was created to feature the changing historical landscape of China.  This exhibition reminded of a past workshop I conducted at the Smart Museum  at the University of Chicago, emphasizing their exhibition "Envisioning China".






My workshop centered on the various masks used in Chinese Opera, developing an art unit of mask making and personal identity.   The art unit guides student learning through an investigation of Chinese mask history, art elements and technical processes.



 This complete art unit can be found HERE:)
