I am creating a book called "Create. Collect. Trade. A Collection of Artist Trading Cards for Artists and Students."
I am looking for ACEO and ATC Artists to feature in the book. Since this is the first volume, I am looking for 5-7 artists willing to donate and image or two for a "mock copy" of the cover. In exchange, I will be giving one page of free promotion in the book with site links, text, and images of ACEOs/ATCs for those that give me permission to use the photo for the mock cover.
This past month, I recently posted this thread about ACEO artists donating a card or two to help teach my 3-5th graders about ATCs. The response so far has been HUGE! I have been so impressed by these artists and the response from the art community that this project has snowballed into a even larger one beyond my imagination. I will be receiving media coverage of this project at my school during the main part of the project in the spring that will include a ATC Family Art Night where students and families will gather together to view artworks of ACEO and ATC artists (you) and create/trade ATCs of their own.
Art within the community and reaching out to students and families is a HUGE opportunity for any artist to be a part of. I hope that in reading this blog, you become inspired to help out to either by simply spreading the word of this project, donating an ATC/ACEO, or become part of the book.
WHERE I SEE THE PROJECT IN THE COMING MONTHS AND YEAR...
I will be attending a statewide and hopefully national Art Educator COnvention and Conference in the Fall of 2008 and Spring of 2009. My goal is to present this project and book with the eventual goal of turning this into a national contest for visual art students. I cannot tell you what a huge promotional tool this would be for an artist as well!.
