BREC ART SWAP!

In the tradition of baseball trading cards and collecting POKEMAN characters, BREC Art is introducing BREC ART SWAP!

ART SWAP is a fun way to create, trade and collect small pieces of art made by YOU! Using the Artist Trading Card format, this is how it works:

  • Art of ANY KIND is created on a 2.5 x 3.5 (the size of a playing card and suitable for collector album sleeves) card or piece of paper.
  • Write the title of your card and your name on the back of your card!
  • Once your tiny masterpiece is complete, you will snail mail it to the following address:
    ATTN: BREC Art
    6201 Florida Blvd.
    Baton Rouge, LA 70806
  • When your art piece is received you will be sent an art piece created by another artist!
    (PLEASE NOTE: SAFETY PRECAUTIONS WILL BE USED WHEN HANDLING AND MAILING ALL ARTWORK)
  • Limit is 5 cards per mailing per artist.

Helpful Tips:

  • THERE ARE NO RULES! Any media is welcome:
    • Painting and drawing
    • Collage
    • Embroidery and/or scraps of material
    • Digital
    • Doodles
    • Quotes
    • Markers, colored pencils or just a pen
  • Cut your card or use an old deck of playing cards, select your media and begin!
  • DON’T stress about perfection – remember, it’s a creative outlet that allows you to express yourself, show your style and brighten someone’s day!
  • Include any information you would like to share on the back of the card. Just the title, your first name only, your contact info – totally up to you! (Just remember to include your address when you mail the card so we can send you one in return.)

Why Snail Mail?

There are so many digital ideas, picture and creative ways to post on-line, BREC Art thought it would be fun to receive a surprise in the mail and actually hold and cherish artwork created by another in our community. It’s also a great outlet for those who have limited access to a computer.

Professional artists, bored teens, novice adults – ALL 16 YEARS AND OLDER ARE WELCOME!
