Fifth Grade Molas
Fifth Graders are now working on Molas, an art from Panama created by the Kuna Indians. Traditionally, Kuna women create mola designs by layering and sewing bright pieces of cloth. One of their main inspirations is animal life. We created our Mola animals with markers, then made a background collage to replicate the repeated oval shapes seen in most Molas. Here are students working on their collages.
