ATC's are Still LOTS of Fun!!!!
One art activity that most of my students LOVE to do is creating personal Artist Trading Cards (ATC). These are small 2.5 by 3.5 inch cards on which people create small works of art out of various materials. THEN.....you trade them! People trade them with friends and other artists, even around the world. What you end up with is a miniture gallery of art from a variety of artists.
ATC's can be made out of posterboard, material, matboard, or just about anything. They can be decorated or created with all kinds of media, ie. paint, pencil, pen, marker, collage, fibers, etc, etc, etc. The imagination can soar!!!!
Try some of these your self, and Google, "ATC" or "Artist Trading Cards" and see where you can go or where you can trade!
