Mail Art for the Holidays
It’s so much fun to receive handwritten letters, homemade cards, and unique postcards in the mail! Want to make someone's day with a heartfelt act? Join us and discover the quirky "postal art" movement that encourages people to make and exchange miniature works of art in the mail. We'll design and print postcards; we’ll decorate envelopes and fill them with thoughtful, personalized messages and one-of-a-kind works of art for the holiday season.
Lisa Kaija received her BA in Art History at Dartmouth College and her K-6 General Education/Visual Arts teaching certification through the Upper Valley Teacher Institute. During the last thirty years, she taught all subjects in grades K-4 and some subjects in grade 5-6 in various Upper Valley public and private schools. She has trained mid-life career changers to become teachers and raised five children with her husband, Kevin. Lisa revels in teaching art. The question she dodges most often is “Are you an artist?,” since she considers herself a teacher first and an artist second, and elementary art teachers need to know a little about a lot of different art forms. She thrives on challenges and enjoys being creative with people of any age.
