The Art of the Mask ft. Irene Faiz

By Neil Andersen

Carol Arcus and Neil Andersen from the Association for Media Literacy gather each Monday evening to look at 21st Century culture and current events through a media literacy lens. From politics to popular culture, we guarantee that you won't leave an episode thinking quite the same way ever again.

Following on the previous episode – Unmasking the Mask – Neil and Carol welcome special guest teacher Irene Faiz from Toronto District School Board to share creative classroom ideas for building media literacy and art skills through masks. She offers wonderful examples of how to mobilize key media concepts through analysis, personal response, and engaging production projects such as mask logos, birthday/wedding masks, and masks for a social cause.
