Artist trading cards exchange

December 7th, 2014 meeting

Filed under: Meetings on November 24, 2013 11:50 pm

DATE: December 7th, 2013
TIME: 1:30 p.m.
LOCATION: First Congregational Church at 1980 Hamilton Avenue, San Jose

At our Saturday, December 7 meeting, we’ll be sharing our artwork from the group paint project. Whether your artwork was created using one or both of the photos selected, we look forward to seeing and discussing them with you.

Also at our December meeting will be the exchange of Artist Trading Cards, or ATC, as they are known. You’ll receive one card in return for each card you bring. The cards measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size and using your choice of medium, are miniature pieces of art. On the back of each card be sure and put your name, date, the medium used, and a way to contact you either by email or phone. The exchange of artist trading cards has been a fun time for our group in the past and I’m looking forward to our exchange in December.

Remember to also bring a finger food dish, either sweet or savory, to share at our Decemer meeting.
