What is an Artist Trading Cards or ATC?

 

Artist Trading Cards or ATCs are small works of art measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches that are made to be traded between artists. ATCs are also the same size as poker playing cards, which make a good base for collages. They can be made in any media on any subject.

 

Why make and trade ATCs? The small size of the card allows you to experiment with new media and techniques without spending a lot of money on supplies. For many participants, the interaction with other artists and the opportunity to learn new things is more important than the trading of the art itself. Trading on-line has become very popular, especially for artists who cannot attend live trades locally.
