Mask-making in Art Therapy

Masks are ancient symbols of transcendence and power that have been used in traditions of every known culture. Creating masks in art therapy can help people better understand themselves and their relationships with others. Handmade masks foster the expression of wishes, fears, fantasies, and hidden aspects of the self.

MPS Art Therapy students created masks of their own faces from plaster cast, allowing them to explore the complexities of persona and shadow.
