CURRENT FAMILY ART NIGHT PROGRAMMING:
THE ARTIST TRADING CARD CRAZE
Explore the new art form of Artist Trading Cards! Create, collect, and trade your own miniature works of art created by you and your family. Learn and experience techniques such as printmaking, stamping, huichol yarn design, collage, marbling and more! Each family will receive their own "Guide to Artist Trading Cards" where they can learn, create, and store their cards in. Families and students will have the opportunity for their art to be in the next publication of Create. Collect. Trade. A Collection of Artist Trading Cards Created by Artists and Students. All participants will have the opportunity to trade and collect Artist Trading Cards at the end of the evening.

HOW DO I GET FUNDING?
Being a teacher myself, I ask this question all the time! First, check with your school's PTO or PTA organization. Some corporations or organizations in your community may offer grant money towards programs for the arts.
In the past, I have fundraised using Art To Remember, a program that allows students to create an artwork, then have their artwork printed on a variety of keepsake items! I have found that parents love ordering holiday cards, quilt blocks, and gifts year after year! The product quality is amazing as well!
I have also received funding for my own Artist Trading Card Nights I have put on with past schools through DonorsChoose.org.
