I'm a middle school art-teacher.
I just found out about the wide community of art-teachers that blog, so I started my own at the beginning of this year.
I got in touch with people who create zentangles and got to learn about ATC.
I want to trade ATC with my classes, but first I want to try it myself!
I like so many different art styles and I try to do them all myself too.
At the moment I like every kind of ATC very much. I just got to know about them and started trading them a few weeks ago.
I like zentangles, watercolors, acrylic paint, collage, modern art, vintage art, ... oh I could go on forever.
I Like color, but sometimes an artwork is stronger without it ... that's the artist's choice.
I also collect stamps so if you post me a package I'd like it if you use nice stamps of your country if you can.
Not that I'll give you a bad rating if you don't off course, I just love those colorful little pieces of art on the envelope ...
Anything political, religious, vulgar, ...
Sometimes it can work on a work of art, but I'd rather not you sent this stuff. If you really want to send me something like this you can always send me a message and tell me about the artwork and why you would really love to send me something in this theme and I will think about it. Although I'll never will approve something vulgar :/
I have 2 English blogs about art.
My first is http://artlessonsfrombelgium.blogspot.com/ where I post about my art projects in 7th and 8th grade. It is intended for inspiration, maybe you'll find some ideas there too.
My other is http://teachermotherandwife.blogspot.com/ titled 'Touch of Beauty'. There I post about my zentangles, my ATC and other challenges. If I get a swap from you, you'll probably find a post about it over there too!
If you have a group of children (youth club, class, birthday party, ...) and you want to trade ATC with some classes of mine in Belgium (7th and 8 th grade), you can send me a message.
From September to June we can swap ATC cards (in a special theme if you want that).
