Postal Alchemy: The Magic of Mail Art

Journaleen Headquarters Presents:  An Online Mini-Workshop w/ Juliana Coles

People have been asking me how I make my mail art cards as seen on my www.julianacoles.etsy.com shop, and so I thought I would share my secrets!! Registration for this online workshop is open and ongoing.  This workshop focuses on a fall/Halloween theme, but gives instructions for using these same mixed media mail art techniques for any holiday and any theme...or no theme at all! So you may register at any time during the year and keep coming back to post and share new postcards with a creative community in a ongoing workshop!

$55.00 (scroll down for payment and registration)

This is the perfect introductory workshop to my unique style without the intensity of inner work. This workshop is strictly for fun and to get you out of your creative rut. This course is suitable for all ages, all levels, and no prior experience is necessary.

help_back.jpgWhat is Mail Art?  Simply put, mail art is art that goes through the mail.  Discover Postal Alchemy with my mad methods for raw expression and uncover the magic of mixed media!  You will learn to creatively “mass produce” at least 20-30 mixed media Mail Art Postcards in about 3 hours ( an easy evening or weekend workshop!). This workshop is fun and addicting and you will create postcards as mini treasures and works of art  that you can trade with friends, give away as gifts or holiday cards, mail them as thank you notes, etc., and some of these you will even want to frame! Add a to/from label and stamp to this alchemical mix, extra postage required, and you’ve got instant mail art postcards that will astound and amaze everyone you know with your brilliant creativity!


Workshop Cuasleep_back.jpgrriculum:
   This is my basic mail art class and it contains: 

Full color downloadable PDF files, downloadable audio files in MP3, supportive video, and discussion groups with prompts to help you learn to share your work with others and have a place to discuss any issues or problems, create a community, as well as join the mail art exchange group! The full color PDF files, presented like a cool graphically designed zine contain a brief history of mail art, a basic supply list as well as recommendations for gathering Fall, Halloween, Day of the Dead (or any other theme or non theme) related ephemera, a library on inspiring books on the subject, some samples of my mail art exploits into addresses unknown, as well as all the hints and techniques necessary to go postal including a few homework assignments to expand your experience of mail art.   

 Please note:  this workshop does not offer input or moderation from me ( However I do monitor groups for safety issues and you can always email me personally with any concerns or problems), though you will have great fun sharing your postcards in the tribal forum or group discussions to get some ideas of how other people work and gain valuable feedback and set up your own mail art exchanges! These Mail Art assignments are mainly visual and do not include any visual journaling assignments or exercises that combine journal writing with artwork- that‘s another class!

 Please email me if you have any concerns or questions:  meandpete@msn.com
