Students in Jenny Morse's fourth-grade class at Jefferson Elementary School in Dixon show off their hand-painted African-influenced paper bag masks Friday morning at the school. A parent of a student in the class made the winning bid on an art party hosted by The Next Picture Show. The class learned to make the spirit masks from local artists Ellen and Les Allen of Dixon.
