Cultural Representations in Folk Art

While folk art can be highly innovative, it is rooted in a particular cultural context.  This section of lessons demonstrates how folk art is linked to traditional ways of living and understanding the world.

Place and Space of the Folk Art Object

How we understand the meaning of an object has a lot to do with the context in which it is seen. This section of lessons demonstrates how folk art is understood within its specific place and space.

Urbanization and Change in Folk Art

Folk art changes as it moves across time and space.  As we live in a transitional world, folk art adapts to new surroundings and updated materials. This section of lessons explores these adaptations.

Mashing Folk Art

As fresh ideas and influences affect us, folk art is made to accommodate newness by integrating or mashing, that which is new with that which is traditional. This section of lessons explores how folk art mashes tradition with innovation.

Design and Function of Folk Art

Folk art is carefully designed to function in certain, often powerful, ways. This section of lessons explores how the design of folk art relates to the function the work.
