Folk Art

I love folk art.  It has so many stories to tell.  If you become a student of folk art, you learn about the lives of people both present and past.  You gain insight into what is important to an individual culture; what they believe, their struggles and their joys.  To support modern folk artists is to support everyday people and to keep their traditions alive.
