This forum only appears within this group (and not in the "Forums" link on the paintbrush at the top of each page), so be sure to come back to the Swap Art Group to find the swaps you've signed up for. All of the swaps are posted in this Swap Art Forum. Only the 10 most recent discussions are shown below, but ALL of the discussions can be found in the Swap Art Forum.

  • If you sign up for a swap, please let the swap host know if you will be unable to follow through for any reason.
  • If you host a swap, review the Guidelines on How to Host a Swap and make sure you are comfortable with them. In your post, be sure to include details such as: theme, size/medium, last date for sign-up, date when swap partners will be posted, and date when pieces should be in the mail.

If you're wondering, "What are ATCs"?

ATCs and ACEOs are small works of art that are 2.5" x 3.5" - the size of an average playing card. You can create them in any media you choose.

ATC stands for "Artist Trading Card" and ACEO stands for "Art Cards Editions & Originals". The only difference between them is that ATCs are intended to be traded (and not sold for profit), while ACEOs are intended to be sold.
