Mail Art

I had participated in Artist Trading Card swaps through the mail before but never thought about swapping bigger artwork until I watched a video session on Mail Art at the 2020 Virtual KAEA Fall Conference. Since most of my high school classes are graphic design mixed with traditional media, it seemed like a great opportunity to touch on mixed media and text.

I was home with one of my kids in quarantine when this lesson was introduced so having a recorded demo embedded in the slides presentation worked great.

The rest of the images are my examples. They are all either 4x6 or 5x7 inches made on a tag board base.
I posted in the Kansas Art Teachers facebook group and found another school to swap with! Their art teacher and I also swapped so that was really fun. I would totally recommend doing a mail art project!
