Do you know a child aged 6-18 who would love to get mail? Do they need an excuse to get creative? If so then our You’ve Got Mail class is for them! They will receive blank postcards that will be come their canvas to create a unique artwork that will then be mailed to another classmate. Each week participants will be emailed a different art topic or element to inspire a postcard design. Students will interact though written word with classmates by sending and receiving one postcard per week, but participants create at time that works for them, no Zooming or other technology required! Each registration comes with 10 postcards, 8 postcard stamps, and lesson packet. Students can use any art materials they have on hand such as markers, colored pencils, or scrapbook paper.
