This week we received a surprise package in the post. Early in the year Mrs Smith from 5/6CS in Tasmania invited us to take part in an art blogging project. Except, Miss Crowther didn’t tell us! So, when the parcel arrived we had no idea what was in it…and at first we thought they had sent us cereal!
Watch the slideshow below to see what was actually in the package.
Artist Trading Cards are original works of art produced on mini cards. The idea is to trade them with others, a bit like football cards. The project was initiated in 1997 by Zurich artist, M.Vänçi Stirnemann.
Some of us first met Mrs Smith and her students last year when we did a Mystery Skype. One of the best things about having a class blog is making new friends. We’d like to thank Mrs Smith for asking us to make and trade Artist Trading Cards. It was awesome! We have finished our cards and they will be in the post very soon. We won’t put photos up until Mrs Smith and 5/6CS receive them, otherwise it would spoil the surprise!
What things do you like to collect and trade?
