4 Feb 2018 The World of Art Trading Cards Category: Workshop/Class Price: 80.00 Event Website: https://www.facebook.com/events/841417559353040/ Venue: Old School Gallery and Gifts, Metchosin, BC
Come learn to make and trade ATCs (Art Trading Cards). These are miniature artworks (playing card size) that are created with the intention of trading them for other ATCs. They are always traded, not sold. ATCs are in any 2D medium, so bring your farvourite acrylics, oils, watercolours, collage or drawing materials. Sample ATCs will be available to view.

We will spend the bulk of the class time making six cards to be mailed out as an entry into the Regina ATC 15th Anniversary exhibition "Art is our Mirror" at the MacKenzie Art Gallery BMO Learning Center gallery, from which you will eventually receive 6 cards in exchange.

We will learn how to label and package the ATCs and get them ready to be submitted. We will also go over the process for signing up for future online swaps on an ATC trading website, so that you can participate in additional swaps on your own.
