Wanted: art pen pals

I teach art in Phoenix, Arizona and have a fun request for any of you out
there, the further away, the more fun. I have about 750, first - fifth
graders. I would like to send a box to you and your students filled with
mail art from my students. You would need to have about the same number of
students, if you want to be art pen pals. Each of my students would create a
small drawing and a little description of themselves on one side of a 6" x
12" piece of paper and fold it over and seal it with a sticker. On the
outside they would indicate their grade and if they were a boy or a girl.
There would probably also be a message wishing "Happy Holidays and Happy Year
2000." It would be small enough to be able to be finished in one 40 minute
period with all the crazy things going on before the holidays. I would mail
it to you near the end of next week and you should get it before the winter
holidays if snail mail works as it should. You could have your students do
the same and mail it to us just before your winter break and we should have
it when we come back to school in January. You would need to email me your
name and your school address right away. I would also send you a drawing and
letter from me that you could share with your students. When we get our
school pictures we could also exchange. I think that an art pen pal will be
a lot of fun. If it works, they could exchange drawings a couple more times
before the end of the school year. I will respond to the first one of you to
contact me and let you know that you will be the one. Darlene Ritter,
