ATCs HAVE BECOME A
GLOBAL PHENOMENON...
- ATCs originated in Zürich, Switzerland in 1996 by M. Vänçi Stirnemann for the purpose of trading small art works with fellow artists.

- The original idea was that ATCs should be exchanged between artists and never sold or involve the establishments selling art.

- In recent years has grown into a popular, social way of art-making and collecting art work.

ARTIST TRADING CARDS
-ATCs can be made with any art medium, and can include (but are not limited to): paint, watercolor, pencil, colored pencils, crayon, marker, pastels, charcoal, chalk, yarn, string, fabric, leather, origami paper, collage, magazine, scrapbook paper, stamps, photographs, found objects, image transfer, ticket stubs, old flyers, charms, glass, mixed media...

- The list goes on and on...
The options are limitless, and there are only a few rules...
They can be made as
singles
or a
series
and are, most importantly, are orignlas self-produced. Anybody can create them.
ATCs are meant to be TRADED, and never sold. The idea is to create multiples which are then traded at
trading sessions
or parties/events.
During our final class period, we will have a trading session where we will discuss our finished products, view the work of our classmates, and trade cards.
You will use the criteria outlined and choose from the list of themes provided to make your cards.
