Wednesday, November 12th- ARTIST TRADING CARD WORKSHOP -

at the Open Studio, Robinson's YIG
Hosted by North Art Supplies - a great way to share your art and enthusiasm!

ARTIST TRADING CARDS are miniature works of art created on a 2 ½ X 3 ½ inch (or 64 X 89 mm) card. They are originals or small editions, designed to reflect your artistic spirit. The essence of the workshop is about artists meeting and exchanging their works, enriching everyone's artistic experience by being exposed to many personal styles. Make a card, and take a card - make two, take two. Begin your own little collection right here.

Suggested materials:
- quality heavy cardstock or watercolour paper (you can pre-cut to 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches, or create first and cut later)
- paint, markers, pencils, crayons, photographs, collage materials... use your imagination!

North Art will also have lots of cards & materials on hand - some free to try, and some at a minimal cost.
