Week 4 CHALLENGE

Masks

At the current time in the UK more and more people are wearing masks when they go outside to protect them against the coronavirus.
What do masks do? They may protect us from germs, they may hide our faces, they can make our faces look completely different.
We would like you to design your own mask.
