Fortunately, many others have been kept alive through public interest in arts and crafts.Introduction (I)In the past, nearly everything was made ____.Craftspeople made ____, ____, and other items that were both ____ and ____.However, ____ time, ____ and ____ became the main producers of goods.That has ____ ____ the ____ of some ____.Fortunately, many others have been ____ ____ through public interest in arts and crafts.Introduction (I)In the past, nearly everything was made by hand.Craftspeople made cups, chairs, and other items that were both useful and beautiful.However, over time, machines and factories became the main producers of goods.That has led to the disappearance of some handicrafts.Fortunately, many others have been kept alive through public interest in arts and crafts.Two forms of lost artsMedieval illuminated manuscript(http://www.bl.uk/catalogues/illuminatedmanuscripts/TourBurnShape.asp#B187)(http://www.historicpages.com/texts/mshist.htm)Hand-painted theater posterII. One lost art is the illuminated manuscript. Like all books in Europe up until 1450, they were made by hand. In an illuminated manuscript, 1the words were first copied onto a page. Then, 2beautiful borders and illustrations were added. The first letter of a chapter was often made especially large and colorful. Paints made from natural materials provided the color. Using thin strips of gold (called gold leaf) could really bring a design to life. However, making these treasures was expensive and time-consuming. So, after the printing press was invented, fewer and fewer were made.

A more recent art form replaced by new technology is the hand-painted theater poster. In the mid-late 20th century, going to the movies in Taiwan had a special touch. Outside theaters, one could see large paintings advertising the newest films. To make one, 1an artist started with a small movie poster. From that, 2a much larger version was painted. It emphasized the main actors and actresses, whose names were painted in large letters. After just a few decades, this art form was replaced by large posters made with modern printing methods.Hand-painted theater posterIn the mid-late ____ century, going to the ____ in ____ had a special ____.Outside ____, one could see large ____ advertising the ____ ____.

The good news is people in many countries are interested in handicrafts. 1They learn skills by reading books and magazines, or by attending classes. This has helped preserve many arts such as pottery and jewelry making. 2At shows, craftspeople sell their goods and chat with shoppers, just as they did 1,000 years ago. 3Governments are also helping. For example, the Crafts Council of India helps craftspeople find new selling opportunities. Many of them meet up once a year at the Kamala show to share ideas and sell their goods.Preserving traditional arts (IV)The good news is people in many countries ____ ____ ____ handicrafts.They learn skills by reading _____ and ____, or by ____ ____.
