NCMA To Go Activity Kits: Mardi Gras Masks
Get creative and inspired by NCMA art and artists at home! Each NCMA To Go activity kit has materials for a complete art-making project for one person, plus written instructions. Kits are designed for all ages to enjoy.
February’s kit brings to life the festive celebrations of New Orleans’ carnival season. Create a mask inspired by the performance traditions of the Mardi Gras Indians, whose elaborate hand-crafted costumes would have been enjoyed by the musicians depicted in Romare Bearden’s New Orleans: Ragging Home.
Reserve your kit at the link above. Please specify the quantity of kits you are requesting (maximum four per reservation). Kits will be available for curbside pickup at the Museum on Saturday, February 13, starting at 10 am until they run out.
