Summer Art Camp Week 3: You've Got Mail! (Ages 11-14)



Explore 2-D design and creative writing with Post Card and Mail Art! Using collage, paper marbling, found text, ink, and even a few stitches, students will make mini-masterpieces to send out into the world. Each day we will try different techniques to inspire new creations which we can snail-mail to ourselves, friends, family or each other.

The week will include a small amount of prompted creative writing and ‘quick draw’ challenges in an art journal that we will make to keep ideas. The journal will be a great way to collect inspiration and experiment with visual storytelling long after camp ends.

Note that all payments will be refunded if the class is canceled due to the coronovirus.

When: Monday-Friday, August 3-7, 9am-Noon each day
