Activity 1: Making time for Postcards!

Instructor: Andrea Matthews


Postcards allow travelers to tangibly share their experience with others.  A live sketch sent directly from the site is even more personal than a store-bought postcard.  Trips offer so many exciting things to do that some of us end up skipping the postcards.  This activity gives you the chance to carve out some time, plus you get to share the company of other symposium-goers.

Come prepared with addresses of friends and family.  We will sketch on postcard-sized watercolor paper, fill in the addresses, and mail them as soon as the activity is over.  Postcard paper and stamps will be provided.  The location is right next to the post office.

My Supplies:

  • Postcard-sized watercolor paper
  • Stamps

Your Supplies:

  • Addresses of friends and family
  • Your preferred mark-makers – pens, ink, pencils, watercolors, or whatever you like most to draw with.
