Fourth-grade students in Mary Zane's art classes watched the visiting artist at work making elaborate, high relief wooden masks.
The program was offered through Margaritas Mexican Restaurants Education Outreach Program.
Art teacher Mary Zane said the students also explored mask making and Mexican culture in art classes leading up to Friday's event.
