About This Class

Prepare to explore the lost art of notecard writing.  In this class, you will search out the forgotten paper of your world.  Forgotten paper is everywhere: in the magazines that are sent to your house, in the wrapping paper that your lovely friends wrap gifts to you in, in business cards that your saavy associates slip in your suit.  We will use this paper and you own creative imagination to design mixed media notecards and postcards that you can mail to your friends, enemies and secret lovers.
