Event Details

Headdresses with Lucrecia Novoa

Note Date Change: Saturday, February 22, 12:30-3:00pm


Master mask-maker Lucrecia Novoa will teach you her techniques on how to build headdresses, choose a simple character, create it and develop a feeling over the head. You will leave with a beautiful and unique piece.


Lucrecia Novoa is an artist and cultural educator who uses a combination of masks, costumes, storytelling and dance to interpret the folk traditions of many cultures. She believes that art education must be strong component of our children's lives, feeling that they need to be motivated not only at an intellectual level but should also receive tools that enhance their creative minds and personal talents. Lucrecia studied Fine Arts in University of Chile and the Massachusetts College of Arts. The turning point of her career was when she attended the Art of the Mask course offered by Eric Bornstein in 1996. Under Eric's patient guidance, she learned not only techniques of mask masking, but also how to mold gestures and expressions into the masks. She began producing fantasy creatures using large masks and sophisticated costumes and soon sought her own characters, based preferentially on dark figures representing witches, monsters and ghosts. Over the years, Lucrecia has been involved in several workshops, shows and theater. She has organized her own workshops and exhibits over the last few years. Of particular significance were the exhibits in the Waltham Public Library which displayed my drawings, paintings, and masks in three consecutive years.
