Students Share Art Their Art With Others
The ARTIST TRADING CARD Project
ATC's are a fun way to get the year started with a small, but meaningful project. It's also a great filler project when you have just a couple of days to work on art. I like to choose a loose theme, such as ' My Community' , then allow students to explore their own interpretation of what that means to them.
We share our ATC's with other classes within our district as well as in other states and countries.

The theme of this ATC lesson was to pull two words from a hat and create art depicting those words. This student got BALLOON and TORNADO
The ceramics students make ATC's...with Clay!
For this project I had ceramic students make an abstract art paper collage first,
then replicate it using clay.
