Is anyone interested in having art pals (like pen pals) with a bilingual school in washington dc? We could exchange student made "trading cards" 1-2 times per month? Let me know!

    I love that idea. What artists are you doing the "trading cards" with? And what grade level is making them? I would love to try to fit it into my 3-5 curriculum.

    I'd be happy to do this too! I'm K-4 if that suits your needs. If enough people respond, maybe we could all pair off.

    This sounds like a great idea and I would definitely be interested! I teach Pre-K-5th.

    I would love to get my elementary students involved in this! I teach in Richmond, VA. Anyone else looking for a partner at the Elementary level?

    I would love to do this with my art club! Anyone interested in doing trading cards as "pen pals"? It sounds like such fun!

    I would love to do this with my bilingual students. I teach 4k-8th grade in Milwaukee, WI. I am interested in finding a partner as well.

    I would like to try this, but next semester for my Drawing II Class! It would be 9-12, but I don't see a problem trading with younger kids :)

    I would love to be partner with another Elementary school; well two of them since I teach at two different schools. Anyone interested in a rural (mountain) Virginia school?
