Coinciding with its current exhibition Philip Carey: Art in my Veins, Intuit is proud to welcome artist Philip Carey for a postal art workshop. Philip Carey’s work can be described as colorful, wacky, strange and full of fun. Born in 1942 in Long Beach, Calif., Carey creates art inspired by his dreams and the medical treatments he received between 2004 and 2015.

In this make-and-take workshop, Carey will help you share your own story through postal art. Enjoy a hands-on session in an informal creative setting with instruction on concept, materials, technique and process. Carey will discuss the experiences that inspired his postal art on view in the exhibition. You will create your own starter pack of original art envelopes using a variety of pencils, pens, markers and colored pencils. Then select one of your envelope designs for a small batch of reproductions, printed on-the-spot to send in the mail to friends, family, or other lucky postal art recipients! All supplies included. Postage will be provided too!
