Live on-line with Miss-elaine-eous!!
Artist Trading Cards (A.T.C’s) are miniature works of art measuring 2.5” x 3.5”. They are created using varied materials, and a multitude of art techniques, including painting, weaving, sewing and metal embossing. They became an art form in the late 1990’s introduced by Swedish artist M. Vänçi Stirnemann. They appeal to all ages, and are collected and traded throughout the world. I have been teaching the art of A.T.C’s since 1999 to both children and adults. Student ages have ranged from 5 – 85 years of age (sometimes in the same group!)
Artist Trading Cards are meant to be shared and traded (however many students choose only to collect). In this time of socially distancing it is a perfect art form for helping children, and adults maintain contact with family and friends!!
The class time format will closely resemble that of on-site classes at Bryant Elementary School. I will present an inspiration sample card at the beginning of the class. Students can then decide to follow my lead and/or create their own cards with the materials provided. The remainder of the class will be working and sharing with other students. Especially during this time of school closure, emphasis will be placed on creative socialization. Students will be provided binders for collecting their cards, and each week they will receive blank cards and materials. Details regarding pick-up will be arranged after registration. It will be close to the school and the need for social distancing will be taken into consideration. In addition, this is a perfect opportunity for students to consider mailing their A.T.C’s to family and friends. I will be sharing my love of “postal art” and suggesting ways to showcase their art on envelopes.
