Mixed Media Mail Art
The early mail art movement started in the 1950s and consisted of art such as postcards, envelopes and more, united by how they could be circulated by mail. In this class, you will use mixed media (collage, paint, printmaking, and simple bookbinding) to explore a different type of Mail Art each week:
Artist trading cards
Collage greeting cards and embellished envelopes
Junk mail journals
Instructor Jennifer Penick will also offer unique (and optional) opportunities to mail and exchange your art: you may choose to swap artist trading cards with classmates, to make a greeting card for someone in need, and to prepare a series of postcards to raise funds for a charity of your choice.
Mixed Media Mail Art uses minimal supplies and is good for all skill levels.
Fridays | 10 am – 12 pm | Oct 13 – Nov 17 | 6 sessions
