Mail Art Postcards Course - Share Your Joy


New Online Course Offered via Zoom


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


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!

Material List:

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

- Adhesive (Glue stick, Elmer's X-Treme Glue Stick is best but not always easy to find)

- Substrate (4"x6" or 5"x7" postcard. It can be heavy paper, old postcards, heavy watercolor paper, file folder stock, card stock, etc. I actually cut my "postcards" out of cereal and cracker boxes which give me a nice, study postcard.) NOTE: Have at least two 4” x 6” cards ready for to use in first class.

- Miscellaneous collage material (Junk mail, inside of security envelopes, magazines, catalogs, take out menus, old greeting cards, sheet music, old books, photographs, used postage stamps, food packaging, stickers, etc.) The more you have available to you for your use the better.

- GOLDEN fluid or heavy body acrylic paints in your favorite colors (or similar brand)

- Five or six, or more, blank sheets of typing or photocopy paper

- Magazine issue to use as a glue pad

- Hand towel or paper towels and a damp cloth to clean glue from your fingers while you work

- Cutting mat (optional)
