From facial expression to grimace to mask

by Rene Reiter

The students of the 7d class dealt with facial expressions and emotions. One student played an emotion for his partner, who then drew it.

Joy, anger, and satisfaction were easy to act out, but thoughtfulness, pride, and curiosity were more difficult to portray mimically. The students solved the task with a lot of imagination and enthusiasm.

They continued with a self-drawn mask, which represented a part of the face. Now the students held the mask in front of the face. With the part that was left free, they practiced how to portray different emotions, for example, with a constant mouth and only with the expression of the eyes.

This was not only educational, but also a lot of fun for everyone.
