How-to: Mask Making with Manila Folders $25
Sounds crazy, right? But these architectural wonders are light, beautiful, cheap, fun, and don’t take forever to dry, like paper mache. They do not require a studio nor elaborate heating or water access, and the ‘debris’ is non-toxic and recyclable. They are inexpensive, and with practice, can become elaborate master works of art!

How-to: Bali Module $45 + S&H
This module has an outline construction to establish sequence and structural constancy. After the Introduction, the Bali Module is broken into three Stages, which in turn are broken into Sections. Each Section contains “Notes to the Teacher”, “Group Discussion”, “Reading and Reflection” (designed as a hand-out for the students), and “Food for Thought”.
