Mola Workshops Began Today

January 12, 2010

The new year is off to a great start for Art in the School volunteers.  Today we had the first of three workshops for the lesson Mola! Kuna Women Create a Layered World. Dr. Nancy Pauly of UNM’s Art Education Program returned to lecture on the Kuna  women’s wonderful art in colorful fabric.  She brought her own collection of molas to share with us.
