SIDELIGHTS: Jennifer Foreman told CA: "My writing springs from my work in theater and education and from a desire to advocate the educational significance of performing arts through masks and mask-making. Another intention behind writing Maskwork was to make the subject of masks more accessible and less 'fusty.' As my main interest lies in using mask-making as a vehicle for creative work, and I wanted the book to appeal to any teacher, lecturer, or artist who was searching for a 'way in' or stimuli for their work in theater and education. I have written about the projects I have used to motivate and involve the people, of all ages and backgrounds, with whom I have worked over the years. I encourage improvisation in techniques and use easily obtainable materials. Maskwork projects are fun, but the results are often stunning and always different.

"I am currently researching masks in Shakespeare's plays and his time, with a view to publishing a workshop project on the subject."

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
