Unlike many other forms, Folk Art doesn't have a single history in any one culture, era, or civilization. It belongs to all cultures, and represents the "non-trained artist" and his and her work. It is a creative endeavor by regular persons and craftsmen, who want to take ordinary useful objects and make them crafted and artful. This colorful survey introduces readers to the roots of folk art and its impact on everyday life. Decorating techniques, rituals, and celebrations are explored.
