"Mail Art Postcards: Share Your Joy with Collage Art"

Online Course Offered via Zoom

Mail art is small handmade art sent through the mail to your friends and family. It's a great way to discover the creative, expressive art of collage. Using a wide range of materials you probably already have around your home or can easily make, we'll work together to incorporate texture, color, shape, and pattern into your collage works. In this class, we'll create mailable postcards and well as make painted papers to use as collage materials. Join us online for a fun, creative time and make art to share with your family and friends. Hope to see you on Zoom!

Tuesday Afternoons, July 28 and August 4 (2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Savings Time)

Class Material List

- Scissors, plus optional cutting tools (X-Acto knife, etc.)
