I've talked about my love of twinchies already and now I want to extole the virtues of ATCs. ATC stands for Artist Trading Card, 2 1/2 X 3 1/2" works of art that can be traded with other artists. The only rule about ATCs is that they are not to be sold! Any media or technique goes for these. They are quick to create so those with little free time have no excuse! You can find many online groups that organize ATC "swaps." Find one today and try your hand at these little gems. Art Chix Studio has hosted them in the past so that is one site to check out. (see links at right.) I've done ATCs with my 5th grade students and they had a blast with them, too.
