I teach a watercolor painting class for adults and I introduced my students to the world of Art Cards - Artist Trading Cards - ACEOs. Tomorrow night we will all be trading amongst each other in class. Shown here are the cards I painted to trade in class. All of my art cards are original watercolor paintings.
ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions & Originals
ATC stands for Artist Trading Cards
The art cards are known as ATCs when traded and ACEOs when bought and sold. They are pretty much the same. The key important thing for art cards is the size. ACEOs and ATCs are alway 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. They can be created in any medium.
Buying or trading art cards is a great and inexpensive way to collect little pieces of original art from a wide variety artists.
