Folk Art

Folk Art groups together all creations which reflect the traditions or culture of a people or social group. It's generally not elitist, that's to say it's accessible to all, including those having little or no knowledge of art. It disassociates itself from fine art and learning inherent to academic teaching.

Folk Art mainly draws its source from the need to embellish everyday life. Thus, for example, we endow with aesthetic quality commonplace objects, or restore letters of nobility to ancient oral tales. Folk Art can manifest itself in the most highly diverse forms, inspired by traditions, values, and the artist's lifestyle
