Studio Art: Artist Trading Cards

 In Painting and Studio Art classes we are creating Artist Trading Cards this week as the last project of the quarter.  They are small 2.5" x 3.5" art cards that can be shared with other artists around the world.  We will create a series of 5 cards in any media that all fit into a theme chosen by the artist and we'll send out 4 of the 5 cards to other students in the 2018 Worldwide Artist Trading Card Swap. In the past we have seen our cards travel to 3 continents and we have received cards from students in 12 countries and 18 states. The 5 cards will be due by the end of the class on Friday and when the are complete we'll label the backs with our first name, school, location, year, and my twitter handle @timneedles so we can find out where they end up!
