Day 3 at the CWC Circus Camp in Yongin, Korea, featured a new activity for us—the design of a clown face.
In Kendra Kandlestar and the Crack in Kazah, there is a lot of face and hair design in the Jamboreen celebration—as you can see in this illustration of Kendra and Oki.
So I thought this would be fun for our students.

We started by discussing famous clowns, including perhaps the most famous of all, Grock, and then looked at some of the stunning designs that are featured in Cirque du Soleil. Armed with this inspiration, our students proceeded to create some pretty wonderful (and, in some cases, creepy) clowns and masks . . .
