Artist Trading Cards
Artist trading cards are self-made, unique works of art that showcase your personal artistic style.  These cards are collected and exchanged, similar to the way baseball cards are traded.  In this course, you'll create multiple art cards, experiment with multi-media techniques, share your creations with others and collect art from other creators.  In each class session, you'll create a card using a new theme.  This class is appropriate for all skill levels, including novices.
