Artist Trading Cards
Artist Trading Cards Funshop.
Open to all ages.
What are Artist Trading Cards?
Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are simply pieces of art that are made out of cards measuring 2.5”by 3.5”.
You can buy special paper already cut to this size, or better yet, simply use sturdy paper you already have at home. Old file folders, card stock, greeting cards – any paper that is not flimsy – can be cut to the right dimensions and used as an ATC. Think about baseball trading cards and look for paper about that weight. Or, be
creative and use materials other than paper. Just keep to the 2.5” x 3.5” size.
Once you have your 2.5 x 3.5” card, what you do with it is up to you. Draw on it, paint, collage, sew, embellish, write words.
In an ATCs funshop, all of the participants share materials, themes, techniques and ideas with others in the funshop to make unique ATCs. And we always schedule time for trading/swapping finished cards too.

Upcycle Photo Frames
This is a challenge!  How well can you think outside the frame?  Take an old photo frame (preferably 5 x 7 or larger) and use the materials in the makerspace to create a new item with a no-longer wanted one.  We will have a few discarded frames on hand, but bringing your own cast-offs to upcycle and share makes it all the more fun!
