If you are a crafter, painter, collage artist, think you would like to try your hand at art for the first time or just want to express your creativity without spending much time, space, or money come join us. Art experience is not necessary; I had never had an art lesson but was able to create ATC’s right off the bat once I knew the “rules”.
ARTIST TRADING CARDS are miniature works of art created on 2 ½ X 3 ½ inch card stock. They are originals, small editions and, most importantly, self-produced. Anybody can produce them. The idea is that you trade them with other people who produce cards, either at TRADING SESSIONS or wherever you meet another ATC trader in person. It is important that you meet other people in person to trade - i.e. it is ok to trade by mail but the main purpose of this performance is the trading session and the personal meeting.
Be here on the second Saturday of the month at 1pm to make as many ATC’s as you can in the 3 hours we will be meeting. We will gather in my garage studio with lots ‘o art supplies and ATC blanks that I will supply then we will create some great small works of art to trade with each other. I will give a brief demonstration at the beginning of the Meetup for anyone who isn’t familiar with this art form and then off we’ll go. Make sure to wear clothes that you can get paint or glue on or bring an apron to work in. I’m looking forward to meeting you.
