Teen Craft Squad: Postcard Poems & Mail Art

Presented by Ukiah Library at Ukiah Library

Postcard Poems & Mail Art – Teens will learn about the joys of giving & receiving mail art! Using the postcard as a format, teens will draw or paint a visual image on one-side of the pre-stamped postcard, then flip it over and use the reverse side as a form to compose a poem, & finally mail it to a friend or family member.

The Ukiah Library will be hosting special events for Teens & Adults in April during National Poetry Month:
Postcard Poems & Mail Art (teens), Wednesday, April 19th 2-5pm
Into the Wild Poem (Adults & Teens): Saturday, April 29th 11-12 pm

National Poetry Month is the largest literary celebration in the world, with tens of millions of readers, students, K-12 teachers, librarians, booksellers, literary events curators, publishers, bloggers, and, of course, poets marking poetry’s important place in our culture and our lives.
The goals of National Poetry Month are to:
• highlight the extraordinary legacy and ongoing achievement of American poets
• encourage the reading of poems
• assist teachers in bringing poetry into their classrooms
• increase the attention paid to poetry by national and local media
• encourage increased publication and distribution of poetry books, and
• encourage support for poets and poetry.

All poetry events are free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Friends of the Ukiah Valley Library.
