Postcard Party Exchange with the Knoxville Museum of Art

Maybe by now you’ve had your own Postcard Party, the CIVICKIDS January digital challenge. We teamed up with the Knoxville Museum of Art (KMA) to facilitate a postcard exchange between the children they work with in their Community Schools and a school we work with here in NYC. Find some of the postcards we made together below!

The Knoxville Museum of Art has been a key partner in CIVICKIDS by implementing each of our challenges with their Community Schools Program. Join the fun! Make your own postcard, and don’t forget to share to our online gallery with #CMACIVICKIDS. Check out all of the creations we made with KMA and St. Luke’s School on our Flickr page.

Select postcards from kids at St. Luke’s School to kids at the KMA’s Community Schools Program. View the rest on our Flickr
