Middle school art students from Brownwood and Early exchange artist trading cards during 'Big Art Day'

Art students from Brownwood Middle School and Early Middle School participated in the “Big Art Day” event for Youth Art Month by having an artist trading card exchange.

Throughout the year students have made artist trading cards - miniature sized artworks, made with the intent of trading them. Each student selected one to send to the other school, and the teachers, Julie Mize (of BMS) and Jacque Rider (of EMS) met to give each other their students’ cards.

On Big Art Day, during their art classes, students were able to choose a trading card from the other school. At BMS, the art students also traded their own cards with each other and made mini-books from marbleized paper, and then glued their collection of cards onto the pages.

“This is the third year that Early and Brownwood Middle School students have done this artwork exchange,” said BMS Art Teacher, Julie Mize. “Jacque Rider and I like that our students are able to share their artwork with each other. Everyone enjoys seeing what drawings and designs the students have done in both schools.”
