This week in Fine Arts, we will be exploring art and mail, from the history of mail to making our own greeting cards. In this fast-paced technological world, sometimes it is nice to give – and receive – a handmade card. Months may have passed since you last saw your extended family or friends. Why not show them you miss them with some “snail mail”? If you wish to show your support for your favorite first responders or soldiers, I have the contacts to have them delivered.

All you will need is:

  • Paper
  • Coloring materials (crayons, markers, colored pencils, paint, etc)
  • Scissors (optional)

The YouTube video for this lesson will be up by Monday, September 28th, in case you are unable to attend in person.

The previous art lessons for the last two weeks are up on Art with Katie Cordy on YouTube. Due to my own limited time, I was only able to create the how-to parts of the lessons and not the lecture portion. I will likely not go back to create those and instead focus on producing more content for the future. Last week, I only taught how to draw one of the Fancy Farm Animals, but all four animals are up on YouTube. I plan to create more side lessons that are not taught in class, but due to the fact that these are made on my own time, side lessons will not be consistent. Please be patient with me as I learn how to continually improve on my video-making process.

black Sharpie marker

We are still backordered on supplies. The district is working to fix this as soon as possible. We have the paper and the Sharpies, but we are still waiting on the markers and the watercolors. Please be patient, as this is out of our hands. Our vendor is working with us to rectify this quickly, but it may still be some time.

Your (eventual) supply kit will have:

  • 1  Ziploc bag to store materials
  • 2 black Sharpies
  • 1 set of markers
  • 1 watercolor set including a paintbrush
  • 25 pieces of thick paper
