Nicole Hanley is an art teacher for elementary school children … She is also a shop owner at Etsy. Awhile ago she asked me to donate some ACEOs to her children at school so they would have some Art Cards Editions and Originals or ART (Art Trading Cards). These are little pieces of art that are 2.5 x 3.5″ big. I sent them because I want to support children appreciating the arts and making art – we all want that to continue!!
Imagine my surprise when next she is publishing a book of ACEOs – from both artists and school children. I needed to pay to be involved ($40), but that seems like a good thing to do – both for my career and to support the arts in school. So I decided to participate.
Nicole has a blog “Create, Collect, Trade” where there are lots of details about this book and this project. There are also ways that you can participate to support this – either by buying the book, for yoursef or a student … and you can also sign up if you want to be part of the next edition. I encourage you to check this out .. there will be 32 artists involved and then students … all in support of “Create, Collect, Trade.”
Here is today’s bubblescape – I hope you enjoy!
