Creative Crafts of the World – The Early Years (the 2020 year)

This page contains the video I created to help me teach the class "Creative Crafts of the World – The Early Years" remotely in the Fall of 2020 (a.k.a. the year of COVID 19). The class teaches simple folk arts from around the world and is aimed at 2nd and 3rd grade school children. The videos are mostly closeup footage of critical steps in these folk art techniques which would be difficult to demonstrate live in a ZOOM meeting.
