Artist Trading Cards

Artist trading cards are miniature works of art created on a 2 ½” X 3 ½” surface.

They are original artworks or small editions self-produced by an artist, however anyone can produce them. There are no restrictions on the materials or theme, which means the possibilities for creativity are endless. Everyone is invited to participate and all techniques and mediums are welcome.

Artist trading cards must be original artworks created for this call for entry. Each individual may submit up to nine artist cards. Please place the title, medium, the artists name and contact info on the back of each ATC.

How to make artist trading cards:

A template can be found in the downloads section below. If you're interested in working on your ATC's, RMWB Programs host Open Studio on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 – 7:30 PM at the Haxton Centre (Borealis Park – 10500 Morrison Street). Open Studio is a program where artist's bring their supplies to the Haxton Centre and work with which ever medium they like in a supportive atmosphere with other local artists.

2. Sign, date, title, and place the edition number (if they are a series) on the back.
