Students create works of art at school. Maybe they’ve visited a museum or an art gallery to see works of art, but have they ever considered that art can be sent and received through the mail? Mail artists exchange creative works through the post! This broadcast will allow students to explore strategies used by mail artist Danielle Raymond in her work. Students will learn how mail artists reinvent envelopes, collaborate with one another, and play with the written word. In the post-broadcast activity, students will produce mail-able art!
