It’s that time of year. The time when artists exchange mail art with 5th graders in Rama Hughes art class.
It’s such an excellent project. I wish more children could do something like this. I think it could possibly lend a comforting perspective of adulthood to children who feel unsure about the future & what it means to be grown up.
Somehow I never managed to post about my exchange last year:
In 2011, Leat made me a lovely postcard with a wonderfully well drawn ballerina! I sent her a ballerina paper doll in return.
This year I received a card featuring super cute characters by Ayelet. (Love that the cheese is on a plate!)
Time was short this year so I didn’t have time to make a paper doll but I hope Ayelet will like the little painting featuring some of my favorite things.
I can’t say enough good things about this project! It’s fun & inspiring and I love being able to participate.
