Artist Trading Cards with Elaine

Instructor: Elaine D. Woodhouse, CertEd, CQSW
Grade range: K-5th
Time: Tuesdays 3:45-4:45
Location: Rm 103

The concept of miniature pieces of art in a trading card format was the brainchild of Swiss artist M. Vänci Stirnemann. Limited only by its size of 3.5” x 2.5”, children and adults alike, create art to collect, trade or share. Recently, our cards were shared with children in Guatemala! As a card enthusiast, I have traded my art cards both nationally and internationally. In this class students will have the opportunity to use a vast variety of materials and art techniques to make their miniature art. Some cards may pop up, spin, open, or surprise. We will collage, sew, sculpt, fold and weave a card collection that will represent a wide spectrum of creativity. In addition to a class “project” card, students will always have the opportunity to experiment with materials and design their own cards. The number of cards you can make is restricted only by the time available. Students will receive a binder and protective card sheets to store their work.
