Mask Making Workshop Offered At Edmond Library


A mask isn’t always to hide who you are.  Sometimes, it enhances who you are.

Join local artist Patrick Riley at the Edmond Library, 10 S. Boulevard, on Friday, November 1 for “The Art of Masks and Masks As Art,” a mask making workshop for teens and adults.

“I guess people tend to think of masks, especially at this time of year, as scary things to hide behind and have a little fun with,” said librarian Mary Ann Johnson, “but they can be a lot more than that.  Just think of the way masks are used in religious ceremonies and in theater productions.  That’s just two ways masks can be used not to hide identity, but to create a new one.”

Space is limited for the workshop so the library asks that you call ahead to 341-9282 reserve a place.
