Welcome to our site. Founded in 1985, CRIZMAC Art
& Cultural Education Materials, Inc. began as a publishing company
dedicated to the creation of art and cultural curriculum resources
for schools and institutions. As the years progressed, we developed
a catalog, expanded into the world of folk art, and continued to
add new products, including children’s literature, music,
and resources for teachers and artists. Today CRIZMAC offers a wide
selection of folk art from around the world. Our clientele consists
of fellow art lovers, folk art collectors, art teachers, classroom
teachers, parents, and students.
In addition to publishing, we offer our exciting travel program,
Journeys of Art and Soul. In the early years, the trips
were available only to teachers but over the years they have expanded
considerably and are now offered to the general public as well.
Educators can earn professional development and/or graduate credit
for their participation.
Our Speaker Series is a staff development program that
represents speakers and artists who are available to travel to schools
and provide seminars for the faculty and/or students on a wide variety
One of our latest ventures includes the opening of our retail shop,
the CRIZMAC Marketplace, which offers an enticing selection of folk
art, books, music, jewelry, gifts items, and much more. Special
sales events and artists’ shows are held at the Marketplace
throughout the year.
We also offer a variety of lectures, classes, hands-on workshops,
and day tours, often in collaboration with other local organizations.
Our monthly lecture series, ARTiculations, is held in the
newly expanded classroom at the Marketplace. Other organizations
and individuals take advantage of this space for their classes as
At CRIZMAC, we are committed to offering the best educational resources,
