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. 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 collected, shared and traded. 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 introduce a featured card of the week at the beginning of the class. Students can decide to create the featured card and/or design their own with the materials provided. The remainder of the class will be working and sharing with other students.
Students will receive a collector’s binder/protector sheets/ blank cards that will be available for pick-up before the start of the session at Bryant Elementary School. Exact location, date and time to follow. Students will also receive weekly “FEATURED CARD OF THE WEEK SURPRISE ENVELOPES” (includes card components).

Elaine has also received certification as a social worker, specializing in child care. Most recently she completed training as a sign language interpreter.
“Traditionally, folk art was created by people who did not even have a word for art in their culture. Art was simply what people did. It was a part of being human. My classes foster this philosophy in a contemporary setting. Folk art often has a practical purpose or meets a specific need. Many of my classes utilize found objects and recycling, reflecting our society’s need to conserve and repurpose”
