Artist Trading Cards
The day before holiday break all of the elementary students created artist trading cards. The art tables were set up as various stations with different media and the students spent time at each station experimenting and creating designs on their cards. I suggested that the students could write secret messages, inspiring quotes, and sign their name on the backside. At the end of class students were asked to trade their cards with their classmates. Below are some of the pictures taken from when the 1st and 2nd graders while they were working on their cards. This was a great lesson for creating a sense of community in the art classroom.
