little cards...

My students really enjoyed this project last semester and some of them were just so great that  I had to share!  An artist trading card is a miniature work of art 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", about the size of a baseball card.  It actually developed out of the mail art movement and the cards are produced in many different media.  They are rarely sold and are actually meant to be traded among artists.  My students kinda laughed when I told them we were going to make "trading cards", but they really got into it and kept wanting to make more!  We hung them up on the board in the classroom and every class had so much fun looking at all of them!
