Staten Island Museum: Family Art Workshop with Lina Montoya: Mola
Aug 4 @ 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

The mola is a handmade material that forms part of the traditional outfit of the Guna, indigenous people of Panama and Colombia. Molas have their origin in body painting. However, after colonization by the Spanish and contact with missionaries, the Guna started to transfer their geometric designs to fabric, first by painting directly on the fabric, and later sewing. In this workshop, guests will use paint to explore the geometric patterns, themes, and colors traditionally associated with molas. Registration recommended. To register visit the Event page at StatenIslandMuseum.org. Supported in part by Lily Auchincloss Foundation and Richmond County Savings Foundation.
