Artist Trading Cards

A Collaborative Cultural Experience - ARTIST TRADING CARDS are a variation of the popular mass-produced trading cards. The difference is rather than buying them, you make them. This means that each card is an original work of art, or one of a small edition, that you can trade with other people who have created their own cards. Any media, from pencil, paint and photography, to collage, mixed media, and 3-D materials, for this form of art, anything goes!

Learn how you can use the Artist Trading Card concept to "ramp up" your curriculum and how see easily students "take" to this new art form - this is sure to be a hit at all grade levels! Includes videos and handouts on an ATC assignment that covers the Elements of Art and Principles of Design.

$35 plus $5 postage.
