ABSTRACT
This article begins with a short history and definition of folk art and its relationship to visual culture and art education. The major focus of the article is a discussion of the attitudes and beliefs of art educators toward folk art and visual culture. Qualitative research results are presented with the perceptions of practicing teachers and pre-service educators given. From the findings, it was determined that in order to integrate Folk Art into the curriculum, it needs to be included in pre-service courses and professional development for art teachers. Inclusion of folk art could expand the educational base and help students develop wider cultural and world views. In addition, educational programs need to foster more opportunities for teachers to study abroad or to provide more cultural exchange programs with other countries. Finally, suggestions are made with respect to the integration of folk art as a teaching method into the art education curriculum.
