Wyoming Folk Arts Handbook. A Handbook for Community Research and Programming.
Evans, Timothy H.; Kessler, Patricia A.
This handbook is intended as a resource for use in the study, documentation, presentation, and teaching of Wyoming folk traditions. Much of the information is applicable to work with folk traditions in general. The seven chapters include a brief description of what folklore and folk arts are and a survey of some folk traditions practiced in Wyoming. Two chapters address how to conduct research with folk art and artists, and how to coordinate local festivals. The chapter on folk arts in the classroom deals with research; student collections; museums; folk artists in the schools; field trips; senior citizens; and discipline-based art curriculum. Funding and resources suggested include local, state, federal, and private sources. The last chapter provides additional bibliographic sources to those mentioned throughout the text. It is followed by appendices of sample collection and data logs, forms, and an evaluation sheet. (MM)
