Example text

28 Calligraphy is a form of writing or drawing that produces beautiful, intricate, and artistic letters and drawings. Calligraphy originated with handwritten manuscripts that were slowly and carefully hand-lettered over a thousand years ago. Each style of lettering had its own name. These styles were the origins of the many different fonts, or typefaces, in use today. In those days there were no computers or even typewriters, so writing by hand was the only option. But until recently, relatively few people could read or write, and calligraphy was limited to a few experts.

Canvas and artist’s board are also not the only materials used to paint or draw on. Lined paper, scrap paper, newspaper, cardboard, metal, and wood have all been used in Activity Reverse Painting on Glass Originally imported from Asia into Europe, then from Europe into the United States, reverse painting on glass was very popular with folk artists during the 19th century. The technique involves painting with oils on the back of a piece of glass. The result is a delicate and shimmering work of art.

34 Folk Art and Tradition Academic painting is not the only art arena where tradition matters. There would be no folk art if traditions were not passed down from one generation to the next. And traditions cannot just be handed over without explanation. Children must learn about their culture’s traditions through stories. Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Independence Day mean nothing unless a person knows what they stand for. Because most people could not read until recently, the fables, stories, and poems of long ago were not written down, but were preserved through paintings and mosaics and through an oral tradition of one generation telling stories to the next.
