Now Open Deviant Art's own little ATC club!
The Artist Trading Card Group is to be a place where everyone on DA can post their ATC's and trade with other deviants, or not if you so choose. Hopefully soon we will be holding contests, hosting swaps, and have a chat room! This group is for everyone of all ages so come hang out and just have fun being yourself and create mini pieces of art!
What is an Artist Trading Card?
an ATC as they are referred to are miniature works of art. They can be anything as long as they are a 2.5 inch by 3.5 inch (6cm x 9cm) card. they can be made of paper, plastic, fabric, metal whatever you heart desires.They can be digital or traditional art. "They can feature the art of photographers, printmakers, watercolorists, collage artists, doodlers, metal crafters, and mixed media enthusiasts" according to thebook Artist Trading Card Workshop. Artists then trade the cards (they should never be sold!) with other artists thereby building up an extensive -and free- art collection!
