Now Accepting Artists for the FALL 2008 Edition

Hi Everyone!

The Fall 2008 Edition of "Create. Collect. Trade. A Collection of Artist Trading Cards Created by Artists and Students," is in production and accepting ACEO artists at this time to fill 30 available spots. I have a huge waiting list, so spots should go fast.

Here is the listing to reserve your two pages in the book...

*Each book includes an actual student ATC to start or add to your collection of ACEOs and ATCs.

**Profits from the book and ads go to the purchase of student copies of "Create. Collect. Trade." I have been writing many grants to help provide copies, but I can only do so much! 

If you are not sure if this is something you are interested, feel free to check out the first book (currently on back order, but will be available in 2 weeks).

WHAT WILL THE ARTIST RECEIVE?
For the $40, each artist will receive 2 FULL PAGES in the book. 4-8 Images from each artist will be placed on the two pages. 

The artist may write a short paragraph about their art, Etsy shop, experiences, or information they would like to share on their page. Artists may also post links to their shops, website, blogs, etc. for further promotion and information. Upon purchasing, the artist understands that information and images should be appropriate for elementary age students eyes.

-Each artist will be recognized on http://createcollecttrade.blogspot.com/ and gain local and national attention through distribution of the book. 

-The book will also be presented in an 2-hour workshop at the AEAI Art Education Conference in November.
-7 Artists will also be selected to appear on the front cover along with 5 students.

I'm excited to be a part of the fall book! =) I teach 3rd grade and also help with our music program at my school. I would love to start an ACEO project with the students at my school! =) My students begged to see my paintings, and I took them in one day to share. They BEGGED to purchase them. I told them that I would not sell them any, but they could each pick one that they liked for me to make for them. What an inspiration your site is!

smiles,

This is such a wonderful idea! It is great to think that I may help inspire young people to follow their dreams or perhaps create a new dream!
