There is a lot of discussion about what ATCs are.

This swap is to experience a little of what they can be!

3 partners--2 ATCs for each-- a total of 6 ATCs, each made using a different technique or medium

You can use any art medium, but each must be a one of a kind little piece of art. The only requirement is that they be 2.5" x 3.5".

You can make:

  • an artistic photograph

  • a watercolor painting on watercolor paper

  • an oil or acrylic painting on gessoed thin plywood, masonite, or canvas board

  • a drawing in graphite, pen and ink, charcoal, colored pencils, etc

  • Digital painting

  • Altered photo--digitally or using mixed media techniques

  • Paper or fabric collage

  • found object assemblage

  • Mosaic, spray paint, stenciling, ATC zine or book, pop-up foldable shapes, etc, etc, etc!

Anything goes as long as they are your best work, something you are truly proud to share with another artist--AND each one different!

Take this as a challenge to step outside your comfortable box and try something new!

Are we to make 6 different ATCs? Or 2 different techniques and reproduce them for each partner?

6 Unique individual little pieces of Art!

No reproductions or duplicates, each piece must be of a different medium and/or technique.

I guess I have to wait until tomorrow to assign partners.

I'll be on it as soon as possible--everyone who is signed up so far is golden! I'll check for any sneaky possible- flakers before I assign, just to be safe!
