ATC Swap

Sat., Oct. 18     10 am to Noon

Future dates:  January 24

 

“ATC” stands for Artist Trading Cards which are cards the size of a baseball trading card & created using any sort of media including paper, ink, paint, rubber stamps, ephemera, collage sheet images, fabric, buttons, whatever your creativity requires! The cards can then be swapped with other artists.

 

A central Iowa group of ATC artist, which has been holding swaps at the shop, would like to invite any other ATC artists & anyone interested to join the next swap.

 

All ATCs to be swapped must be 2 ½” x 3 ½” and made or backed with sturdy cardstock (so they will last).  The card should be original (i.e. you can use photocopies on a card but cannot swap a photocopy of an entire card) & should be signed by the artist on the back. Artists put the cards they want to swap on display during the first part of the swap & then the cards are traded with other artists.
