ATC'S


ATC'S (artist trading cards)



Starting in September of 2021
I will be starting a ATC group.
More information will follow.

 



Here is some information oh how you do a ATC. (ARTIST TRADING CARDS.)

Question: What is an Artist Trading Card or ATC?

"I've heard people talking about swapping artist trading cards. What are these?" -- C.P.
Answer:

An artist trading card (or ATC for short) is a tiny, original piece of art created with the intention of swapping or trading it with another artist, not selling it. The one rule an artist trading card must adhere to is the size. An ATC must be 2.5x3.5 inches or 64x89 mm. (Why? That's the size of the original collectible sports trading cards.)

On the front of an ATC an artist creates an original work to showcase their art. It can be a one-off, part of a series, or a limited edition. On the back the artist puts their name, contact details, title of the ATC, number if it's a limited edition, and sometimes the date it was created.

Artist trading cards can be made in any medium and using any technique, whether it's painting, drawing, or collage. You are really limited only by your imagination and materials.

Who you trade with and whether you trade one of your card for one of someone else's, or think it's more valuable and want multiple cards, is up to you. You can also trade cards you've received if you don't want to keep them. The whole aim is to be creative and communicate with other people being creative.


Here's how it's going to work. I will post the theme every other Month. You have a sign up for 7 days. at the end of the seven days you will have 30 days to make these cards. There is  a limit of 10 per group. When you are4 finished you are to send them to me.

Then I'll divide them up and resend them back out, I will cover the postage of the mailouts.

What a Birthday Hannah Had.
She had broken her foot 3 weeks before her
24th day. So she end up celebrating with a 
foot cast on her foot.
How many times does a 
mother warn theirs daughter not to 
wear heels. Actually she broke all
4 toes they snapped forward.
