Folk Art Society of America
The Folk Art Society of America, founded in 1987, has become a dynamic, non-profit organization which advocates the discovery, study, documentation, preservation and exhibition of folk art, folk artists and folk art environments. Artists, educators, historians, writers, collectors, dealers, curators, museums, libraries and art enthusiasts from across the United States and around the world join together to share a common bond of interest in self-taught art and the unique individuals involved in its creation.
I have used these exact brushes exclusively for over 30 years teaching art to students from kindergarten to college. They hold up extremely well, if washed properly. They also hold a point and can handle a lot of paint at once. If taken care of they can last for years of continuous use. Students appreciate their quality and get much better results with a higher grade of brush, I cannot believe that Loew-Cornell has discontinued making them; so get them while you can find them.
