Folk or traditional art, as practiced by ethnic, regional, occupational, familial, and religious groups, refers to the traditional expressions through which these communities maintain and pass on their shared sense of beauty, identity, and values.
Generally, folk or traditional art is learned by example from a family or community member, through imitation and repetition, rather than through formal instruction such as classes or workshops. Ordinarily, valued and authentic folk practitioners are brought up within a traditional community, learning a repertoire and style from their seniors.
Green artists take used or recycled materials and upcycle them to make art or functional objects. The products convey the artists’ wisdom, skill, and creativity for conserving the planet — using materials in sometimes recognizable, and sometimes surprising ways.
