"Mola Collage"

This "Mola Collage" activity & project also includes:

Collage projects are always fun and can connect to some interesting topics, such as mola patterns designed by the Kuna tribe. Children express their understanding of shape, pattern, detail, and design as they draw, color, cut, and then paste a repetitive pattern onto construction paper. The pattern becomes the background for their highly detailed drawing of an animal. Tip: Have pupils research the purpose and execution of traditional mola designs.
