Winter Musical Decor

During the month of December, art students were involved in putting together the Winter Musical, "The Mitten," based on a Ukrainian Folktale. Art students created masks of several animals, such as rabbits, badgers, foxes, mice, and moles, for dancers and singers to wear on top of their heads. Art students also helped in creating a winter landscape/backdrop of paper snow, snowflakes and trees. Some details of the background and masks are visible in the photos.
