Programs & Events


FOFA continually develops projects – both in Oaxaca and in the United States — to benefit the folk art community in Oaxaca. Some bring awareness in the United States of the astounding creativity of the artesanos working in diverse media (e.g., ceramics, decoratively-painted woodcarving, textiles, jewelry, dried flower crafts, tin work, and candles – to name a few) via exhibitions of their pieces, tours of private collections, and video and photographic documentation.


Others enhance the capacities of the artesanos with classes in English and marketing, creation of portfolios to document their artwork, while yet other programs introduce them to new markets by supporting the establishment of folk art markets and/or introducing artesanos to already-existing markets.
