The Art of the Mask

June 11, 2020
“The Art of the Mask” online educational program is designed for schools and families with children ages 7 and older. 

The program takes place on Zoom platform. Participants learn about the history of the mask, its usage and significance in different cultures. Ritual, theatrical, masquerade, and other types of masks from various time periods are presented, as well as artworks by famous artists, the mask being the essential and central part of those works.  In the last and creative part of the program, participant families create protective masks with materials available in their homes. 

“Education has been one of CCA’s primary functions since its opening, and the Center continues to value the importance of knowledge during this pandemic. “The Art of the Mask” educational program aims to maintain the connection between the community and the Museum through discussions on topics of art. As a result, a unifying creative atmosphere will be nurtured among families, and the participants will prepare protective face masks, thus acquiring very vital and helpful skills nowadays,” stated the Acting Executive Director of CCA, Vahagn Marabyan.
