Art Trading Cards

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro
Art Trading CardsArt Trading Cards, also known as ATC's, have been popping up everywhere as a means to create small-scale art that can easily be collected and traded.1. Purchase many packets of 2.75" x 3.75" plastic trading card sleeves for each student. They generally cost just a penny each. Provide lots of construction paper that is already cut the same measurements.
2. Provide art symbol ideas for the particular country the students are to cover. This posted example is for Mexico, so the student drew cactus and other Mexican imagery. Good colored pencils are the best media for this as they are bright and allow for detail.
3. Have the students make two cards for each sleeve, one with an image, and one written with the country's name. Both can be placed in the sleeve, back sides together, to make a double-sided card.
