Art Trading Cards and Free Adult Workshops

ATC Group (Art Trading Cards) The “Art Trading Cards” group meets to design and paint art trading cards.  Artist trading cards, or ATCs, began in the tradition of business cards, but with a personal, artistic twist. Artist trading cards are generally 2 ½” x 3 ½” (The size of playing cards and other trading cards). Drawing and painting are easily done at this size, but so are plenty of other arts, including leather work, metal work, and collage.  The ATC events are open to all ages and levels of artists.  There is no charge to join in; just come and have fun. The purpose of ATCs is to trade with other artists, so once you have a selection of cards, trade them.  Start a collection of ATCs and try to get as many as you can. Enjoy the fun filled experience of creating ATCs.
