SWAP: In the Kitchen
Sign up: Anytime
Number of items: 3:3 ATCs
Open Media


It seems a kitchen is a busy place during these cold winter months! We often prepare traditional food or drinks for holidays. Maybe we have special cups or plates that are only used for the holiday season. The kitchen can be a warm and cozy retreat that brings memories of years past. Kitchens have been called "the heart of the home". What comes to your mind when you think of your kitchen or any kitchen in which you've enjoyed spending time?

Let's share some kitchen memories on Artist Trading Cards.

Maybe you remember rolling out the dough for cookies, decorating gingerbread men, baking your first pie, or perhaps you have a favorite bowl that belonged to your grandmother or a recipe passed down through the generations. (Feel free to share a recipe along with your card if you wish)

I usually think of women in the kitchen but you can have men or children on your cards. And the kitchens of my imagination are often from the 1950s or 1960s. What is in your imagination?

Each card should have some elements of cooking, baking, and symbols of the kitchen or food. And having a person in your kitchen is great, but not required. . Your art can be modern or vintage.

Some items that might be included are rolling pins, cookie sheets, coffee pots, tea kettles, pots and pans, aprons, oven mitts, and more. What comes to mind for you?

Enjoy combining paper, collage elements, rubber stamping, embossing, stencils, paints and ink, found poetry, and more. Remember that flat cards will travel most securely through the mail.

You are limited only by your imagination! Please do your best work and I encourage you to try something new.

The due date is February 10, 2023

* ATCs must be sturdy and precisely 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size. If you have questions about joining this swap or mailing your Artist Trading Cards, please refer to this page: http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8591

* US players should send a large address label and one US Forever stamp. I will provide envelopes. If you make bulky cards, please send a bit of extra postage if possible.

* International players should send $1 US or 1 US International postage stamp.

* Please share your ATCs on this thread if possible. You will inspire someone else!

* Sign up in this thread, and pm me for my address when you are ready to mail.

Welcome to JenteachesAdaptiveArt! I'm curious about your name here! What exactly is Adaptive art?

Welcome to JenteachesAdaptiveArt! I'm curious about your name here! What exactly is Adaptive art?

"Adaptive Art" is art for students who need adaptations - Basically I am an art teacher for students with the most intense disabilities. I am dually certified in special education and art - I specialize in being able to find ways for students to access art through different projects and different materials, or modifications of projects or materials - I think it's the best job in the whole world!!! It is, however, super stressful. I am loving working on my own art, just in smaller forms, here. It has helped me have a creative practice again but without feeling like I am failing at it because I can't get bigger projects done!

I'm looking forward to this one!!

Art is an important way to express ones self, I remember high schools wanting to remove all art classes in favor of the "more important" classes and budgets, but I find that art can be a good way to use a lot of the other classes teachings, no matter what kind of art it is. The fact that you make it available for the disabled is absolutely amazing, and I'm so glad there are people like you out there making that accessible!
