Join us for a fun-filled day of creating mail art and learn about some history of this art form. Using a variety of papers and file folders we will create several one of kind art pieces that can actually go in the mail. We can vary the size of the file folder or use cardstock to make envelopes. We will also work with some of those beautiful scrapbook papers. Using colorants such as spray inks, paint, and gesso, the pieces will transform into beautiful backgrounds. Then we will use images, text scraps, tape, ink, and other items to add detail. You will create several pieces to pop in the mail. The people at the post office are always excited to see our creations!
