Make a mask of your face that represents your vision of peace! Feb. 3, 9 a.m.-noon at Yavapai College's, Sedona Center for Arts and Technology, mask maker and expressive performance artist, Pash Galbavy invites participants to a make a peace mask as part of UN declared, International Interfaith Harmony Week. A demonstration of Galbavy's fast and easy mask making technique can be seen on the Videos page of

The history of masks dates back millennium. Traditionally they are thought to embody the spirit of the characters they represent. In this workshop, participants will make a mask of their own face, to represent what peace means to them. The mask can then be decorated to become a personal peace totem.

Galbavy is creator of Face Up to Peace ( a mask making project to raise awareness for the development of world wide departments of peace. ( A long-time Sedona resident, Galbavy has made masks with people in the larger Sedona community for over 15 years. In 2003, she invited participants to make masks for the Peace Prayers Project. These life-sized figures were made in response to the Iraq war and represented people's vision of peace. The figures were exhibited at Goldenstein Gallery.

Galbavy says of her workshops: "No experience is required to make a mask. Some people are intimidated by the idea of making something 'artistic.' But my passion is expressive art that focuses on meaning over aesthetics. I tell new mask makers that they can do no wrong whatever form their creation takes."

Galbavy has a Masters of Communication and over 20 years experience working with groups. The mask making experience will be imbued with the values and attitudes of the Person-Centered Approach. There will be no expectation or agenda other than self-and-mask discovery with an emphasis on conditions of positive regard, empathy, and genuineness. Galbavy says: "This is not just about producing something. Interacting, listening, witnessing, and accepting others are all parts of the peace we will practice and co-create together."

The Peace Mask Making Workshop is one of 22 events for the Sedona World Peace Dance Week. Reservations are required, call 649-0135 or For more information, see or
