Leslie Sowdon

A lesson in hand lettering and laying stamps and prints from Leslie. I love the use of the gelli print on cereal box-is it a gelatine print? Anyway, great texture! And the lettering is a great example of possibilities with drawing letters as content/design element. The kids (including my son) are really keen on seeing what letters can do when they are allowed free reign with them! Thank you, Leslie! …

Claudia McGill

Claudia, I am so in love with this piece. It has so many good ideas in a charming little story-uch humble materials into magic. A great lesson that you don't need fancy art supplies to make art that lives and breathes. The children (and the teachers) really loved this. Thank you for this beautiful work, Claudia! I'll let you know if we put a show up!…

W.C.Bill Porter, Olathe Post

Where do I begin? OK-Cowboy mail art-beautiful watercolor out West-with Woody, no less (big hit with the the kids-a shock of recognition-on a stamp!) Writing that looks like a comic book writer's-awesome! His own cancellation-where to begin on that. . . wow and wow! Even his own Canada Goose uh-chop, would you call it? On top of that, he wrote an incredibly useful turn of phrase for the classroom: (if I may, Bill?) "And remember, always do your best, because art is a reflection of you. Like…

Mary J.Greliner

Somebody knows kids. It is funny how Minnie Mouse, Paperdolls, Butterflies, Pups and Cats can be counted on like the Pied Piper's spells. Mary's Envelope brought yells for Minnie, enthusiasm for the paperdolls and awwwwws for the pets. Right on, Mary. Right on. Thank you from us al!…

Mail Art Martha!

I am uploading the amazing submissions we've been receiving sort of catch as catch can. Mail Art Martha's envelope was full of trasures from Retalia inside and out! The "Marths" got a lot of laughs and, by popular request and permission from Martha the First, we will be sending the kids home a copy of her cut and assemble Shopping Trolly Gallery with a nice packet of mail art materials to bring home. (Included in this are bloomin' handfulls of artistamps from Olathe Poste-but more on that…

Valentine Mark Herman

The children have made Valentine their patron saint of Mail Art. The all wanted to make pieces for his exhibition. Val-there are nearly 40 pieces already in the mail for you and another 15 or so to follow. They were terribly excited when his piece arrived. Mr. Valentine is really real! They loved the French stamps, the IUOMA badge, El-vis and his blue bird (real significance here as it would happen)-and a harvest moon like tonight's here. Thank you, Val!!!!…

Jefferson Elementary K-5 Mail Art Project

Thank you, thank you to all you wonderful contributors to our mail art adventure! We've received mail of all stripes and I am working hard to document it all. This has been so successful, I am going to try to arrange an exhibit at the school-and will take pictures to post if I do. Meanwhile, I will begin uploading our friend/contributor's work as quickly as I can. I had an unfortunate run in with the pavement this morning that slowed me down a bit. Hazards of running with sighthounds!…
