Pandemic Postcard Project 

May 18, 2020

Bangor Public Library


Calling all artists, all ages! Spread the word! Be part of a community conversation! Share your ideas! This is a great project for ‘end of year’ assignments.

Create a postcard image in response to one or more of the following prompts. 

  1. After six weeks (or more) of this pandemic, what do you appreciate?
  2. What has been an unexpected benefit of quarantine?
  3. What is something you have learned about yourself as a result of the pandemic?
  4. Create an image about a day in the life of a quarantined person.
  5. Imagine what you will be doing in 6 months that is different from what you were doing 6 months ago.



Cut heavy weight paper to postcard size – 4″ x 6″

Use pencil, pen, colored pencil or any non-smudgy medium. 

Be sure to indicate which prompt you are depicting. 

Please sign your name and city or town where you live.


And be sure to share the information about this project with friends and relatives. We hope to have a large number of postcards to display!  The postcards will be part of a time capsule, reflecting ideas and opinions about our experiences during this unique time.

  1. Argy,

    We are about to start our grants panel meeting today on google meets and I wish you were part of it. I’m nervous and top it off I have my foot in a splint. Long story but I nicked my Achilles when I stepped back into a planter. Many stitches later and crutches – happened Thursday. I know it’ll all be good. Still nervous.

    This postcard idea is perfect for a project I pitched that the PA Council for the Arts partnered with – art in school lunches for those grab and go lunches. You’re always one step ahead.

    Miss you! Hope this finds you well.
