Batik: A cultural art

 IMG_0308_edited

“In addition to being the national uniform of Indonesia, batik is also a local handicraft with special colors and patterns unique to each region or organization. The importance of cultural expression in East Java and the excitement of art teachers at my school means there are many opportunities for me to practice the intricate art of wax drawing and to build the patience necessary for the task throughout this year.”
