"We Are Nature: Mask-Making Workshop"

Masks made of natural materials

The goal of this free workshop is to engage the public in the ideas presented in the Carnegie Museum of Natural History exhibit, "We Are Nature: Living in the Anthropocene." Audubon educators will discuss human influences on the environment with a focus on birds and their habitats, and they will provide insights into what we as individuals can do to lessen harmful impacts. Participants will then create masks to express the thoughts and emotions provoked by the presentation. This exercise in experiential learning through the art of mask-making will help us and museum educators develop lesson plans related to the current geologic age known as the Anthropocene, which is distinguished by humans as the dominant force shaping Earth's climate and environment. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. 

This workshop is designed for adults. Teens are welcome if accompanied by a parent or guardian. Space is limited, so please register at https://goo.gl/forms/lpYzIYqu9YO33wJi1. Registrants will be provided with additional information about the location in the week prior to the workshop.
