EthnoArts Certificate Classes 2014
What is EthnoArts?Art forms, like language, are found in every culture. Ethnic Art forms (songs, poems, dance, drama, verbal arts, and visual arts) are fundamental elements of any cultural system, and reflect the heart concerns and responses of a culture. They are communication tools. Oral traditions house their library of cultural and value-centered information, not in buildings or in books on shelves, but in songs, poems, dances, dramas, stories, visual arts, and other expressive mediums. These cultural traditions, when accessed appropriately, function as an effective bridge for an oral tradition's comfortable movement towards new innovations which are entering their changing life context.
