The beauty of tradition with the charm of the present: Colored-pencil Folk Art bookmark
Folk Art, just like modern graphic design these drawings show the sophisticated patterns & best colors of Korea. Folk drawings may seem like your everyday oriental paintings but they each carry a deep meaning and have a distinct charm that only folk drawings have.
People who have never tried Folk painting may perceive it to be very difficult but those who have made a painting before can tell you it’s actually quite simple! So we’ve made this class for those who find painting difficult but still want to learn and create a Folk drawing.
Creating a Folk drawing with colored pencils gives a new charm to Folk images as it has softer edges and a bit of texture, but it is beautiful all the same. Colored pencils allow anyone & everyone to easily learn and create a Folk art drawing.
Come and spend some time with us learning the beautiful tradition that is Folk Art!
