This class will create artist trading cards while we explore beginning to intermediate collage techniques and design. Artist trading cards are miniature artworks (2.5 x 3.5 inches) created to trade or give away to others, just in time for the Valentine holiday! The cards are a fun format to explore new techniques and styles for any medium. We will learn how to use a color wheel to inform image choice, how to use scale creatively, and how to approach cutting or alteration of source materials. We will review tools students can use at home for collage projects. In the second half of the class, students will use instructor provided source materials and tools to create 2 – 4 artist trading cards to take home or give away. No flowers or box of chocolates needed – just creativity!
