I'm interested so count me in. I found out about this from Ambitions Design and together we are working on some aceo's to send. What will the kids do with the cards? Maybe they could be gifts for Mothers Day ?

Awesome Marie! I am glad that she told you about this. It has gotten really big since starting this thread! I will fill you in!

It is now being called PROJECT ATC. Artists from all over the world are sending ACEO and ATC cards to help teach students about ACEO art (this is not something typically taught in elementary art class, but I do).

By seeing a variety of cards, it is my hope that students will be inspired to keep this art alive and find a type of card that they love to create. These ATCs and ACEOs from artists show students that they do not have to just craw on a card... they can use different materials and things that can be glued to the card or make cards out of.

I have been inspired by this project to create a book about artists inspiring students to create art. It is called, "Create. Collect. Trade. A Collection of Artist Trading Cards Created by Artists and Students." The book will feature 25 artists and 25 students inside.

I would like to take this project and book to our statewide art education conference to present and sell the book. It is my hope to be able to present the project at the National Art Education Assoc. Conference in 2009.

I am distributing nationwide in a variety of ways. I am also talking to a publisher as well, but will have more information on that as soon as I have it.

There will be a Family Art Night for ATC trading cards coming up soon that will be getting media attention. I have also been talking with ACEO Magazine who will be promoting the book project as well though their web, magazine, and newsletter. They will also be a part of the book!

This is a great opportunity for artists to use this book as a promotional tool and a keepsake of their work! Not only are you promoting yourself, but you are also inspiring and helping student artists.

Thank you for your time and the kids and I cannot wait to see what you have made!
Below is more information if you would like to look into this further!

You have an awesome shop!

I like the God's Eyes one! One of my students used about 10 ACEOs to make a huge face.... it was such a clever idea for a 3rd grader!

I convoed you. Thanks for checking out Project ATC!
