I've got another class starting this week at My Creative Classroom called The Ins and Outs of Artist Trading Cards. I have a lot of classes that I have taught there, but this is one of the few that excites me every time. Creating large pieces of art can sometimes be scary -- but the fear is lost on these sweet little gems because they are only 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" -- working small seems to remove the fear from a lot of artists .
We will start this 4 week, 8 lesson long class with a tutorial on ATC's and a slide show showing some of the creative possibilities you can incorporate into an Artist Trading Card.
Each weeks will feature 2 lessons per week – released on Tuesdays and Fridays with each lesson focusing on a different technique – you'll have a completed ATC at the end of each lesson and will learn a new technique to add to your creative arsenal. At the end of the course you'll have quite a few Artist Trading Cards to trade with your friends. I will also organize an ATC Swap -- and will send a hand-made trading card to everyone that plays along in the swap.
I hope you have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by. I'm hoping to be back to regularly scheduled posts tomorrow!
A few of the techniques we'll touch on include image transfers, hand and machine sewing, painting on stamped images and more! This is guaranteed to be a fun class -- I hope to see you there.
