Uncle Carl’s Camp “Behind the Mask” campers explored cultures that make masks and the ceremonies of those cultures. Through mask making, they learned about Native American traditions and the influence of the African culture on today’s American celebrations, such as Mardi Gras in New Orleans. These cultural traditions provided influence and ideas for their mask making projects.

Throughout the week, campers were led in art projects on three cultural mask styles: Central African, Mardi Gras, and Northwest Coast Native American. The last day the campers could create a mask from their own imagination.
