Mankind has been making  everyday objects not only useful but beautiful since the beginning. Folk art is art of the people, by the people, and for the people. It touches us on a deep cultural level; it says "yes" to our basic artistic yearnings.


As our society grows ever more frantic with electronic entertainment and gizmos, folk art offers a comfortable, calm, grounded balance. Creating with our own hands answers a need. 


Ethnic art comes in every culture and such folk art offers a teachable moment for young ones, not only in creativity but also in geography, history, even economics and politics! Through the folk art, the world can open up to them.
