Lafayette's 1st -3rd graders journeyed to Mexico, Panama, Chile and Peru to explore Papel Picado, Amate Bark Painting, Cuna Indian Molas, and Storytelling Arpilleras!
What's red, brightly colored, full of lines and organic and geometric shapes? Cuna Molas are layered and very decorative fabric panels originally created to wear on the San Blas Islands off the coast of Panama. Second graders captivate us with their playful version in oil pastel.
... And what fanciful creatures jump and fly around the Great Hall? Amate Bark Paintings from Mexico!
