Cool Art Teacher

Little J came home from school last week telling me that she was trading cards at school. She said her teacher wanted them to do this. I was confused. Usually trading cards are banned from school especially during learning time. 
Tuesday evening she shows me this....
AH! Now I understand. 
They are making ATC's!!!!

How cool is that! Her art teacher got them started making the artitst trading cards then encouraged them to trade with their classmates.

It was interesting that she didn't realize that I also made these, although it's been a while.
  I pulled out my collection to show her that I traded them with artists from all over the world. 
We decided to make a trade ourselves.

I love this! And, that you traded with her too. My oldest had to make 100 little pieces of art and hang just like these for a college class. I told her to use playing cards instead of the flimsy paper the teacher gave them and it turned out to be just such a neat ring of beauty. I'm happy to be reminded of it. :)

So neat! What a great way for that teacher to turn something that is normally banned into something creative and fun...plus educational!

Color me impressed! How fun now that little J has had a chance to see and exchange with you. And of course, I have a LOT of traded ATCs from little J's mom!
