In the age of e-mail, Facebook and Twitter, a real live letter in the mailbox still gives a thrill. Through writing exercises we’ll explore the structure of letters, how to capture a moment, and ways to push content into new territory. We’ll also create our own envelopes, postcards, and stationery and work with types and applications of visual imagery. Put your imagination to work, slap a stamp on your art, and send it into the world! Bring these supplies: Blank and decorated papers, pens, pencils, scissors, glue; paints and other media optional. Tamara Moan is a visiting teaching artist from Hawaii.
