Studio Art: Artist Trading Cards

We are creating Artist Trading Cards this week to participated in @MiniMatisse's 1st Annual Artist Trading Card swap with other schools across the world.  Above are a few examples created by artists and teachers such as myself from a trade I arranged this summer.

Each student in Studio Art, Drawing, and AP Art will create 6 Artist Trading Cards that are 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" based on a theme of their choice (and the media will depend on the class).  We'll measure out the paper and create the ATC's then cut them at the end because it's easier to keep track of them.

When they are finished well critique and photograph then prepare them to be mailed out.  On the back make sure to write your name, school, state, teacher, age, grade, date, and the title and medium used.  Above are a few more professional examples from contemporary artists for the art hustle collection.  When we receive our ATC's later in the year we'll have a gallery show of the art cards we created and the cards we received.
