What did Maya art look like? 

Today, you will be learning about Maya art. You will be looking at some examples of the different types of art pieces that they produced; be thinking about their different styles; discover some of the materials that they used; and do a deeper look into their masks. We will be thinking about the art's purpose and how it had a prominent place in Maya culture. You will have the opportunity to sketch your own version of a Maya event mask. Follow the power point and video to find out more about this side of Maya culture. Don't forget to write back to Sir Winston to tell him about your findings and show him your sketch.
