Art Express Virtual Workshop: Museum Mail

  • Location Virtual


Think your envelope or mail package is looking a little plain? Brighten the day of post office workers and the recipient of your mail by designing, painting, and decorating it!

In this virtual workshop, Alison Lytle, a teaching artist at the museum, will walk you through how to create ‘Museum Mail’ through two examples inspired by works in the Collection of the Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University: Joan Mitchell’s Begonia and Helen Frankenthaler’s Air Frame.

We'd love to see your work! Send a picture of your museum mail to

Art Express is a series of educational programs for ages 6-12 organized by the Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University. Participants in the program listen to a story, look at artworks in the museum, and create works inspired by them! This virtual workshop series guides kids and families through a step-by-step tutorial of creating original works of art inspired by works on display in the museum, in a condensed version of our in-person Art Express programming.
