        Passionate Pursuits | Global Oneness Project

        All sorts of artisans create beautiful, appealing alternatives to mass-produced consumer goods and entertainment. Communities can become more vibrant and resilient when handmade goods and services are created locally.

        Students view a photo essay, "The Beauty of Craft," by Unnikrishnan Raveendranathen, which portrays a number of master artists and craftspeople in the San Francisco Bay area and their passionate commitment to traditional art forms. 

        In this lesson, students learn about the "maker" and "reskilling" movements and discuss the value of low-technology art and craft forms for both individuals and society. Reflective writing prompts are also included for students to demonstrate their understanding of the story.
