PDXCC is a monthly gathering where participants make and share analog correspondence in the great mail art tradition of Ray Johnson and Anna Banana: art and conversation through the mail. This uniquely democratic, DIY art form incorporates writing, drawing, collage, rubber stamps, faux postage, decorative tape, typewriters – anything goes, as long as it goes through the mail. Hang out, skill share and send the glorious results through the mail. Monthly events hosted by the Portland chapter of the Correspondence Co-op and Niko Courtelis.

 

Basic materials will be on hand (scissors, glue sticks, envelopes\’85), but you’re encouraged to bring whatever materials fuel your creative spirit.

Free and open to the public, every third Tuesday of the month:

The Certificate Program empowers a new generation of DIY writers and artists to thrive in the rapidly changing landscape of modern publishing. Participants choose between one of four tracks and spend two or three semesters creating and publishing their work.

With instruction from many of Portland’s finest writers, cartoonists and self-publishers, Certificate Program students will write, design, hand-craft and publish modest print runs of their own books, zines, comics and E-books.

Our low student-teacher ratio and individual advisor program guarantees personal attention and care. One of our main goals is to help each student develop their own independent style and craft. We strive to make our Certificate workshops student-centered, discussion-based and lively.

We are hosting an information session on July 23rd at the IPRC.
