The Folk Arts program is dedicated to bringing all types of Folk Art to the community, such as tanning hides, quilting, pottery, bead and jewelry making, stained glass, and other cultural and historical Arts that have captivated our ancestors’ hearts and minds for centuries.
We seek to revive these lost arts in the community for present and future generations. Folk Art encapsulates many forms of visual art made in the context of folk culture, drawing elements from indigenous and migrant art forms.
Definitions vary, but generally the objects have practical utility of some kind, rather than being exclusively decorative.
We plan to promote the practice of local Folk Art through classes and workshops throughout Scott County and surrounding areas. We wish to involve all those interested in various aspects of Folk Art and hope you will join us!
