Folk Art 1

Folk Art is a modern term for the old traditional, Cottage Art.  Its origins were hundreds of years ago.  Generally folks had no formal artistic training.  They decorated simple articles; often using materials that were readily available.

In this honour, you will learn about Folk Art and the techniques of creating beautiful works of art – surface preparation, tracing designs, base coating, brush strokes and more.

You’ll see how Folk Art can be used to illustrate life lessons found in the Scriptures.

Best of all, you’ll create at least two objects of Folk Art – a gift for a loved one, perhaps!
