Art Pals

They idea of Pen Pals is so much fun, and getting to know a "stranger" has been a classic way for teachers to teach letter writing skills.
Many years ago, my husband facilitated "Art Pals", through the use of his technology skills. He simply posted some messages on internet bulletin boards and set up an art exchange program for the art class at his school.
The response was phenomenal and so enlightening. Kids felt like they got to know other kids' perceptions in different parts of the world.

Here is some of the artwork received back in 1992:

From students in Japan

From students in Russia. All Russian students were age 11.
