WHAT ARE ARTIST TRADING CARDS?
Artist Trading Cards (ATC) are miniature artworks. ATCs are collected and traded. The only rule to ATCs is that the artworks must be 2.5" x 3.5". This is the same size as baseball trading cards or a standard playing card. Artist Trading Cards are a wonderful way to collect art and to teach a variety of subjects though art.
WHAT IS CREATE. COLLECT. TRADE. ?
"Create. Collect. Trade. A Collection of Artist Trading Cards Created by Artists and Students" is an 80 page publication of ACEO (Art Cards, Editions, and Originals) and ATC (Artist Trading Cards) art created by 30 artists and over 80 3rd-5th grade elementary art students, who use these artists as inspiration. Written by artist, Nicole Lewis, two editions have been published with a third in the works. Copies of the book can be found on Etsy at this link.
WHAT IS PROJECT ATC?
Project ATC was created to connect student artists to adult artists to have the experience of trading art and getting to know other artists. Over 300 artists have been connected with student artists to swap artist trading cards through Project ATC. Are you an artist or student wanting to trade?
