Greene and Greene: The Arts & Crafts Movement in the Sun

The-Gamble-House by greene and greene

A new artisan butcher shop opened in my neighborhood last week. Further down the block is a bespoke one-of-a-kind gift shop. Clearly, there’s a return to the handmade and authentic over mass-produced goods.

As I show in my new Lynda.com course on the Foundations of Graphic Design, the Arts and Crafts movement grew out of the same sensibilities: the rejection of cheap machine-made products and elevation of craft and design with the handmade, unique materials and pride of workmanship.

Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene were two of the most influential adopters of the Arts and Crafts style in the early 20th century.

I’ll show you how their iconic Greene and Greene California bungalows represent the apex of the nation’s Arts and Crafts movement.
