Mail-Art For Beginners Workshops


I am pleased to offer a new workshop for those who are interested in the exciting and addictive world of Mail-art.

You may have heard of Artist Trading Cards, Moleskin Journals, or Art Dolls. All of these creations and more can be traded online with artists all over the world. Build a collection of small artwork with your favorite themes, colours, and styles.

I have been actively participating in the Mail-art world for 5 years. I have created over 500 pieces of mail-art, and traded them over the internet with other artists from Japan, to New Zealand, to Mexico, to the States, and here at home.

In this workshop you will benefit from my experience, gain a basic knowledge of the Mail-art phenomenon and leave with all the tools to start mailing and trading yourself. Not to mention in the added comfort of my spacious professional art studio, Gallery IS, located in Downtown Red Deer.

See you soon.
