Una pregunta, a question for the parents:
I am thinking of having the workshop at my new house, in downtown SLO, and possible doing it every week.
Who would be interested in a more frequent class? ( I may do a class card such as offering a free class after 10 classes, and other ideas, etc)
Would Friday afternoons or Saturday mornings work better for everyone?
Fri 3:30 to 5, or Sat 10-11:30....
I look forward to your input!

I will be doing a Mail Art workshop for teens this coming Saturday. The art we create will be sent to another Library and displayed there. We will use a variety of materials to create postcards, letters and hand made envelopes: magazines, ziplock bags, fabric, stamps, etc.
"Mail art is art which uses the postal system as a medium. The term mail art can refer to an individual message, the medium through which it is sent, or an artistic genre. Mail art is also known as postal art and is sometimes referred to as Correspondence/Mail Art (CMA).
Mail artists typically exchange ephemera in the form of illustrated letters, zines, rubberstamped, decorated or illustrated envelopes, artist trading cards, postcards, artistamps, faux postage, mail-interviews, friendship books, decos, and three-dimensional objects.
An amorphous international mail art network, involving thousands of participants in over fifty countries, evolved between the 1950s and the 1990s. It was influenced by other movements, including Dada and Fluxus.One theme in mail art is that of commerce-free exchange; early mail art was, in part, a snub of gallery art, juried shows, and exclusivity in art. "
and don't forget BILINGUAL STORY TIME in Espanol and English, the second tuesday of every month at 5:15 pm at the SLO Library.

What a fun class we had, que diversion! We painted Eric Carle style, using plastic combs to make texture in the paintings. We played outside while our pinturas dried in the hot hot sol, and then we cut them up to make insects....

Que viento! I chose a windy day to describe our last class which was all about.....el Dios del viento, the Mayan God of wind, Kukulcan (Quetzalcoatl for the Aztecs)...
We started the class playing Memorama, the memory game, a version of which I brought back from my family's recent rip to Mexico, full of drawings of animals made by ninos mexicanos.
Stay tuned for our next class date, which will fall on either April 11 or 18, the beginning or end of spring break. And don't forget that mi esposo y yo do a bilingual story hour the second Tuesday of every month at the SLO Library at 5:15 de la tarde.
Hasta la proxima!
