I hope everyone has gotten a bit of a start on their artist trading cards, developed a plan, or whatever.

Don’t let the time slip away, feel free to comment below to ask any questions or share any ideas.

Hope the summer is treating you well.

Hi, I was just wondering if you have any suggestions about what I should to make the cards on if I’m doing acryllics?

Probably the simplest thing to do is buy some canvas paper, it has the stiffness those pads of canvas lack, requires no real priming and comes in pads of 10-15 sheets of 9×12 paper. Easily available at michaels.

There are other more unusual options, but unless you have a reason to choose one of them, the canvas paper seems the best bet.

Hi Richard,
You and your students are all welcome to join us at the Schurman Family Studio to work on your trading cards and see how other artists are using materials and creating cards. Yesterday we were all collaborating on a trading card project using tarot card reading..we had so much fun and got to make some beautiful cards!
So the open studio night is held from 6-9 at the art studio, beneath the Confederation Centre Art Gallery…and it’s free! I’ll be there every Tuesday, and if you’d like to get ahold of me feel free to e mail. It’s
Until tuesday!

What do we have to write on the back of the cards? Just our names and the number?
