Come to The Art Store during the Prescott Art Walk on Friday, April 24th, any time between 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM and join in the fun of creating and trading Artist Trading Cards. Materials will be supplied by The Art Store for you to make some ATCs which you may trade with other artists or keep for your own collection.
Here are a few reasons why I like ATCs. Do you have some reasons that you would like to add to the list?
- They are small and easy to display in an album, easel or little frame. And I have a real "thing" for small artwork! ATCs are 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches (6.4 cm x 8.9 cm) - or the size of a standard playing card or trading card.
- They are quicker to do than larger pieces of artwork - so you can have even more fun bouncing back and forth between several artistic creations in a shorter length of time.
- There are artists all over the world who make and trade these great little works of art - so there is no end to the variety of styles and subject matter and media that you can obtain.
- They are a great way to try out new paper or media - nice to start small on some of those experiments!
- They are small enough that even with a busy schedule - you have time to do some artwork.
- They are great for working out ideas that can be used in larger paintings.
- They make great gifts (and Mother's Day is coming up soon!).
