In the beginning of 2007, the artists from ARTinA (Art in Algiers) participated in a mask-making workshop. We each were given ceramic masks and then were asked to paint and decorate them. Several of the members brought various materials from which to choose. I liked how my mask turned out and I wanted to do a painting based on the event.

For the purposes of my composition I cropped the image down to the center of the face. I stuck to the same colors as I used dots. The eyes were tricky. Anyway, here is the result below. Above, are photos from the workshop.

  1. Look like it was all fun, from the mask workshop to the painting. Very nice.

  2. Yes, I had fun at the workshop and later making a painting of the mask. Here are the rest of the workshop photos:
