Want to get involved in making and trading art without a huge commitment? Join our Artist trading card exchange program. An artist trading card is a small work of art (2.5 x 3.5) size that you make with the materials of your choice (Paint, pens, markers, pencils etc.) in any style you wish. Every month there will be a theme as a prompt for you to follow.
The Deadline for cards is the 20th of each month. For the first part of 2022 the themes are as follows:
- January (deadline 1/20)-Winter/Snow
- February (deadline 2/20)-Color Red/Love/Hearts
- March (deadline 3/20)-Color Green or Rainbows
- April (deadline 4/20)-Rain/Spring

There are some wonderful lessons and examples of Artist trading cards at YouTube by the following artists: Susane Rose Art, Cat Hand, Maremi small art, and Barb Owen. Check out their videos for fun ideas.
ATCs can be acquired at online retailers, from Cathie Salvo, or you can make your own (2.5″ x 3.5″) from your favorite papers. No sign-up is required! Members who wish to participate should mail their ATC to Cathie Salvo or drop it off in the designated box on her front porch at 116 Wewoka Way Loudon, TN 37774.
On the back of the ATC please add your name and date, and optionally a title/notes. Please return your painted cards with a self-addressed stamped envelope so she can send your exchange cards to you. After the deadline, Cathie will mail an ATC to each person who dropped one off. If you send in multiple ATC you will receive the same number in return. For blank ATC cards or for questions please contact Cathie at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 209-352-3908.
