January Meeting: Artist Trading Cards *POSTPONED*

*** UPDATE 1/12/07: Due to the ice storm that’s just rolled into town, we’re cancelling the January 13th meeting. We’re looking into the possibility of re-scheduling, so watch this space (or sign up for our mailing list) for updates. ***
Polymer Clay ATC from AngelaHave you heard of Artist Trading Cards (ATCs)? They’re 2.5″ x 3.5″ cards that artists make and trade — a great way to meet other artists, share techniques, and show your personal style. (Read more about ATCs here.)
At the Central Oklahoma Polymer Clay Guild’s January meeting, we’ll learn how to make Artist Trading Cards from polymer clay. Deena Parsons has offered to demonstrate how to make these cards, so we can all be ready for the ATC swap we’ll be doing at our next meeting!
If you haven’t taken one of Deena’s polymer clay classes (she teaches at and Bear Makes 3 in Moore and the Firehouse Art Center in Norman, along with various other places around the country), you’ve gotta come see what you’ve been missing! Deena was active in the Dayton area polymer clay guild before she moved back to Oklahoma (hmm… maybe she can give our guild some pointers, too!). Now she’s a full-time artist, and she owns an up-and-coming rubber stamp company called DP Artworks. Deena’s a lot of fun — we guarantee you’ll have fun and learn a ton when she’s in the room.
Angela will be bringing a few ATCs she received in a recent swap to show as examples. If you’ve got some, feel free to bring them along, too.
Here are the meeting details:
* When: Saturday, January 13, 2007, 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. [See weather update above]
* Where: Hobby Lobby at I-40 and MacArthur, 6104 West Reno, Oklahoma City, OK. (The classroom is in the very back of the store.)
* What to Bring:
* Clay (any colors you like) and any clay tools you think you’ll want.
* Any embellishments you might want for your ATCs — i.e., small beads, trinkets or charms. If you want to transfer words or images, bring toner-based mirror-image print-outs/copies.
* Dues! It’s time to pay club dues of $36/year. (If you need to break it up into smaller payments, that’s fine.)
We will provide a couple of toaster ovens and a couple of pasta machines… and lots of fun and encouragement! It’s going to be a great meeting. Don’t miss it!
