When I was in junior high I was both a budding artist and a dedicated pen-pal ... I can only imagine how exciting it must be for these young people to receive their own personal postcard sized piece of original art from a Canadian artist!
Each art student at the Kempenfelt Bay School in Barrie, Ontario views a painting from a selected artist and then creates their response to the painting.
Their postcard is then mailed to the artist.
The artist then creates an original piece in response to the postcard and mails it back to the student.
