CAA Artist Trading Card Exchange Program: Exchange #5

An Important Announcement: Regretfully, I must announce that this will be the last ATC exchange that I can perform. I will no longer be able to coordinate the exchange and must pass it on to someone else. Please consider taking over this function as it appears to be a lot of fun for a number of artists. I have personally enjoyed participating in this fun activity. It has helped my art in general and the many cards I have received have truly been inspirational. If you are interested in taking over the exchange, please send an email to:

Thanks again to the artists who submitted ATCs for exchange #4! I will be making one more PO Box run on Wednesday, May 1 to pick up any stragglers then I’ll put cards in the mail on Thursday. Keep an eye out for incoming ATCs! 


PLEASE NOTE! – You may submit 4 to 6 cards. You will receive the same number of cards that you submit.

To review: Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are 2 ½ by 3 ½ inch cards (the same size as baseball cards). Strict disciplinarians state that these handmade cards should NEVER be sold, only traded! Almost any media can be used to create your art: watercolor, oils and acrylics; crayons, colored pencils and pen&ink; collage, low-profile assemblage, and other mixed media. Yes, just about anything you can think of if you can fit it on the card and still be thin enough to fit inside a standard plastic trading card sleeve. Each card can be a series of closely identical artwork or each card could be unique. Backs of cards often have information about the artist. We will have specific requests of what to put on the back later in this article.
