SchoolArts Artist Trading Card Contest
You and your students are invited to enter the fifth Artist Trading Card Contest sponsored by SchoolArts. Artist trading cards are miniature
works of art, always 2½ x 3½" ( 6 x 9 cm), and are
traded by all ages. They can be about anything
and made with any media, materials, or techniques, but should fit into a plastic trading card
sleeve. They can be produced as one-of-a-kind
originals, in limited editions, or in a series based
on a particular theme or subject. It’s all up to the
individual artist. Visit
