Adolescence Mask Project:
During this project--we as a class were tasked with creating a mask that represents an important topic within adolescence that we care about. We also had to create an essay--being both the explanation and background information for the mask. I studied the relationships between adolescents and dug usage, mental illness, and school. I found many interesting facts about these topics throughout my research. I used a metaphor of drowning in my essay which is shown on my mask through the blue painted face (representing water) and tears (representing all the hardships in adolescence).
