AWAH Art Trading Cards swap is organised by and exhibited at Art with a Heart

 ARTIST TRADING CARDS are miniature works of art created on 2 ½ X 3 ½ inch or 64  X 89 mm card stock.

They are original works of art and, more importantly,
self-produced. Anybody can produce them.

Cards and created and then traded with others, either at TRADING SESSIONS or wherever you meet another  ATC trader in person or online.
