Are you making your ATCs yet? Remember the ATC Workshop and Card Swap is in just two weeks! Bring some to trade and build your collection. (Select ATCs will be available for purchase by collectors.)
If you're still wondering why you should try ATCs as an artform, well, consider the following:
- ATCs are a great way to get your artworks and name circulated and noticed. I would venture to say that almost every, if not every, ATC I have given, traded or sold has been shown to someone else. This is free advertising, and isn't that what we want?
- ATCs are inexpensive and quick to make and make perfect gifts, freebies, and business cards.
- ATCs are also great fun to collect, especially here in Mountainair where there are so many talented artists. I have only five in my collection so far and I'm eager to trade with more local artists.
- ATCs are widely sold on ebay - some for quite good prices. I have noticed that some artists seem to just paint or draw a few ATCs a week, list them on ebay, and do quite well working part time as ATC artists. How fun a job is that? Creating little artworks!
If you're still not convinced, come to the workshop and learn why ATCs are such fun and have created a new genre in the art world.
See you there!
