Painting our vessels!

This afternoon, Year 6 had the opportunity to paint their Mayan vessels using natural colours – red, white, and black. We painted in traditional Maya style, using tips of our fingers and match stick style tools to etch in patterns and detail. A precise yet creative activity!

How did you find the painting process? If you were to sell your Maya vessel, what would it be used for?
