Artist Trading Cards

Join us on Tuesday, May 6th from 4-5:30pm when Artist Christine Livesay from Mill Street Loft teaches you to create your own trading card. Artist trading cards are miniature works of art about the same size as trading cards. They are produced in various media and are usually traded or exchanged. This workshop for ages 8-10 years old will not only teach you how to create your own cards it will also share the ins and outs of trading your artwork with other artists. Register early as this class will fill up quickly. Please call 635-8460 to reserve a seat.
