― Arts and Crafters

Arts and Crafters (also known as A&C and the sock puppet) is the secondary antagonist in Baldi's Basics in Education & Learning. He just appears to be a sock with googly eyes and a cardboard mouth. He will wander around the school trying to avoid eye contact until the player collects at least 7 notebooks and the game enters Final Mode.


When the player begins the game, Arts and Crafters can rarely be seen, disappearing around corners when the player steps into view and will have no influence in the game until you collect 7 Notebooks.

When 7 Notebooks are collected, Arts and Crafters will become jealous of the player (which proves Arts and Crafters has 6 Notebooks) and become a threat. If seen, he will rush at the Player with his mouth open and then teleport them and Baldi to the starting point of the game. This occurs in both Story and Endless Mode.

The player should try avoiding Arts and Crafters as best as possible when they have 7 notebooks, since being teleported to the same room with Baldi places them at a huge risk for a Game Over.


  • An easy way to keep Arts and Crafters away is by using BSoda on him, which will push him away from you.
  • It's more common that you'll find him down at the end of the hallway, rather than around a corner.
  • Avoid looking at him when you have 7 notebooks. It will cause him to teleport you to the start of the game with Baldi.
