Art is creative expression.
The Mifflin Juniata Arts Council embraces art in all its forms:
Fine Art - created purely for aestheticism (Examples: painting, sculpture, music, poetry, theatre, dance, architecture, film,photography, and creative writing)
Applied Art - everyday functional objects designed with aestheticism in mind (Examples: jewelry, glassware, fashion, furniture, ceramic, textiles, industrial and graphic design)
Artisanal Handicraft - functional objects made entirely by hand or only with simple tools (Examples: handmade soap, candles, paper, musical instruments, toys)
Folk Art - functional objects made by untrained or self-taught artists, often with found or repurposed materials (Examples include all of above-mentioned examples.)
This is a very over-simplified explanation of the arts.The forms overlap and intertwine with each other in a way that is beautiful in itself.
The Mifflin Juniata Arts Council seeks to make art accessible to everyone in our community and beyond. Whether you are an artist or craftsman, a seasoned aesthete, or an interested beginner, we welcome you to join us.
