Drawing: Artist Trading Cards

This week we received our MiniMatisse exchange Artist Trading Cards back from classes around the world including: Los Angeles, Kentucky, Vermont, Minnesota, New Jersey, Illinois, and Croatia.  I've been handing out the ATCs to all the students that sent theirs out.  We are beginning a project in which advanced art students will use ATCs from young artists in elementary school as an inspiration for a new piece which interprets their vision.  Below is an example from Luke in Drawing Class to give you an idea of how it works but you don't need to work in the same size, you interpretation can be bigger and use any media.  The final pieces will be due after Martin Luther King day, the last week of the semester.
