Come and learn to make and trade ATCs (Art Trading Cards.) These are miniature artworks (playing card size) that are created with the intention of trading them for other ATCs. They are always traded, not sold. ATCs are any 2D medium, so bring your favourite acrylics, oils, watercolours, collage or drawing materials. Sample ATC’s will be available to view. Instructor will provide the cards we will be working on, and the packaging and mailing materials.
At the start of the class we will get everyone registered on an online trading site, and ready to work on cards for the swap you plan to join, so bring your smartphone or other device. Wifi is available. Then we will spend the bulk of the class time making three to four cards to be mailed out for the swap you have selected. We will learn how to label and package the ATCs and get them ready to be submitted. Then your art can be sent forth to be swapped with other artists from anywhere around the world, and you can look forward to receiving their cards in the mail in a few weeks time! You will leave knowing how to give thank yous for the card you receive and ready to sign up for the next swap.
