Yo! We here at Beacons love to celebrate our youth on the regular, which is why we are happy to introduce
 BEACONS BALLERS!
A weekly highlight of one Anne Sullivan/Anishinabe after-school class.
This week's class is Nataly's Creative Arts

Here middle schoolers can express themselves through art projects and crafts. Some of their past projects include shrinky dink keychains, marbled paper jewery and bottle cap art. The project this week was plaster masks, it took coorperation from everyone to get it done.
 We started by rubbing petrolium jelly on our faces to protect them from the plaster. It made us look kind of creepy.
 


Then we had to lay down and let people place the plaster on our faces, it was so cold and slimey! 





 

 After they dried some we added more plaster to give the masks more definition.
 

 Some of us took inspiration from movies or just our imaginations.

This is how some of them looked when we were finished.
