Hello mail-art friends,
I'm a teacher in an academy of arts in Belgium (Antwerp) and I'm planning to make with the kids (between 6 and 8 years) postcards to send through the wide world. It's to introduce them into another world of art, a form that isn't very commun for kids if they think about art.
The plan is that they will draw draw on one side on the half of the postcard their home/house/ place where they are living and that they leave the other half blank to let fill it up by another person out of another country, a mail-artist. Anyway, the mail-artist could create a drawing or collage or whatever onto the drawing of the child...and doing the same as the kid did on his card : drawing your place/house. that way the artist and the child will create a little neighbourhood with their two houses...will bring two cultures together on a card...and most of all : this action is something very new for the kids and they will be very surprised to see the result.
Who wants to participate in this? Just leave me a message if you want so.
I'm searching like 40 artists, one for every child.
The most important thing is that you will do something on the card of the kid and that it will come back to the kid. I promise you enough pic's of all the results and lots of feedback!
Would be pleased to hear you!
Ik ga er van 't weekend mee aan de slag!
Nog weer even gekeken, wat leuk toch, wat jullie allemaal aan kunst doen! Het is en blijft een leuke website - a great website! Mooi, die kinderportretten, en kan me voorstellen dat ze met de elanden ook uren zoet zijn geweest :o)
