Artist Trading Cards w/ Jerise Fogel
In a two session class, participants will be introduced to the history and idea of Artist Trading Cards - 2.5"x3.5" standard cards that have been used since invented in 1997 by M. Vänçi Stirnemann (a Swiss artist who thought of the cards as a participatory international art project/event) by artists wanting to share their original work with other artists (usually). We will then create miniature artworks, discussing design and materials as we work, and protect them in small clear plastic sleeves (or in other ways that I will show), then trade our cards with one another (or keep them for someone else special in our lives, or for ourselves). Each participant will make a dozen cards (or more!) to trade, and we will also create a special exhibit to show off our favorite cards (on a dedicated website that I will create).

- a dozen or more clear sleeves (similar to these:

Jerise Fogel is a working artist and teacher living in NYC with her cat, Jordan, and partner in life, Fred. Her artwork can be seen on her website, Jerise likes to work with paper, as well as pencils, inks, charcoal, and other natural materials. In high school and college, she was lucky to be mentored by "Clay" Klewiada and Elliot Offner, who taught her a great deal about line work, the human figure, and the uses of light and shadow in drawing, all of which are still a concern in drawings she does today.
