Mrs. Viola’s and Mrs. Kenyon’s fourth grade students delved into South American and Mexican art by creating these beautiful Molas.  Molas are a traditional form of art of the Kuna, natives of Panama, and they’re sewn from hundreds of layers of colorful cloth. The themes vary from modern images, to traditional animals, plants, and places from their legends and culture. The ability to make a fine mola increases a woman’s status in the Kuna culture. Molas are sewn together and are worn as clothing, and the word mola actually means “shirt” or “clothing.”
