ATC FAQ'S

1. Understanding ATCs:

a. What are they used for or what can you do with them?


Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are miniature works of art created on small, sturdy cardstock. They serve as a canvas for expressing artistic ideas and creativity. ATCs are primarily used for trading among artists, showcasing different techniques, styles, and artistic expressions.

b. What size are they?


ATCs adhere to a standard size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches, providing a compact and manageable canvas for artists to work within a confined space.

ATCs are small, handcrafted pieces of art, often created with various media, including but not limited to, painting, collage, stamping, and mixed media techniques, designed for trading and collecting.

2. Techniques for Making ATCs:

Creating ATCs involves a myriad of artistic techniques, including painting, drawing, collage, stamping, embossing, mixed media layering, and incorporating found objects. These techniques allow artists to experiment with different textures, colors, and styles on a small scale.

3. Benefits and Elements of ATCs:

a. Why make ATCs?


ATCs offer a platform for artistic exploration, skill development, and creativity in a compact format. Making ATCs fosters artistic growth, encourages experimentation, and provides an opportunity to connect with a community of like-minded creators.

b. Can you sell ATCs?


While the primary concept behind ATCs is trading rather than selling, some artists do sell their ATCs. However, it's essential to understand the ethics and norms within the ATC community regarding selling, as the primary essence is often centered around trading and sharing.

c. Elements of ATC cards:


ATC elements vary widely and can include images, text, textures, patterns, embellishments, and any creative element that fits within the card's size constraints and enhances its artistic appeal.
