Art Is...Paper Molas

( 22:51 )

This program explores the process of creating molas with colored paper. Traditionally, molas have been made in fabric by the Kuna people of Panama. Peggy Flores demonstrates how to make colored paper molas by first drawing the subject. Then, she cuts the layers of paper and glues them together allowing the edge of each layer of color to show through to complete the decorative mola. A variety of student work is also shown. Paper Weaving with Peggy Flores is also available and complements this program.
