Folk Artists carve wood. Some Folk
Artists carve wood into walking sticks made from long skinny tree branches. When
you visit the Kentucky Art and Craft Foundation you will see a walking stick
made by Debbie Evens Perry. The
stick that Debbie used has a natural curl to it. These curled sticks are very hard to find.
The curled stick that Debbie used has been carved and painted to look
like Uncle Sam. See if you can
locate her red, white, and blue walking stick when you visit the Folk Art

These are curled walking sticks. Imagine one of them
painted red, white, and blue with a carved face of Uncle Sam!
