To start off the new term in Creating Art , students are working on a Mola design project.
A Mola is a colorful layered textile design which is made by the Kuna Indians of Panama.
I brought in a few samples from my collection to share with the students.
Our version of Mola Design will be done using colored construction paper and printed origami paper.
These are samples that I made.
After researching and sketching out their designs , the class began today cutting and gluing down their paper shapes onto their background pieces.
