Whether beautiful or a little dark, each "Spirit Mask" told something about the participant.
Each student in Saturday's class was asked to bring something personal for their mask, made using a paper mache mask form.
A mask made by Kathy Moore, arts center executive director, was decorated with musical notes and puzzle pieces.
"Sometimes life is a puzzle," she said. "I see and create music."
Seymour said she's been making masks for about 16 years.
She explained that each mask shows another part of herself that she didn't know existed.
Some of her masks worked out dreams while others worked out during stressful times in her life, Seymour said.
"It's uncovering and finding out what's deep inside," she said.
Seymour said she doesn't just make a mask whenever she wants, but rather when she's compelled to do so.
"I love it," she said. "I can't control it."
Students in Saturday's class were also asked to name their masks, something Seymour does regularly.
Cindy Feauto, of Akron, did just that naming her bold purple colored mask, "Violet."
"It just kind of came to me, probably because of the color," she said.
