Earlier this year, Mrs Smith and 5/6CS in Tasmania invited us to create and swap Artist Trading Cards.
Upper Plenty Primary School and Montagu Bay Primary School students last completed this project back in 2013 and it was great to be working with Mrs Smith and her class again. Click HERE to see the 2013 Artist Trading Cards project.
Artist Trading Cards are a set of three small, original cards. Artist Trading Cards originate from Switzerland and many people believe M. Vänçi Stirnemann is the person responsible for making them popular today. The cards can have any theme the artist desires and you can use paint, crayons, pencils or any other medium to make them.
Here are some of our Artist Trading Cards:
Opening the parcel from Tasmania was very exciting. We lucky dipped a set of cards from the box. It was interesting to see all the wonderful cards and nature themes chosen by 5/6CS. We are not allowed to trade ‘Footy Cards’ at UPPS but we were allowed to trade our Artist Trading Cards!
Jolly George, our visiting Global Pal, was very excited to join in the fun. He even got his own set of ATC!
What would you draw on your Artist Trading Cards?
