It also can include sheet music, instruments, dance clothes and shoes, literature, and even an offer to trade lessons in piano, dance, voice, painting, etc.

There is be no registration charge. Artists just will need to bring your own table and chairs, and a tent if you wish. The swap will also be open to the public, and you may sell any items to the other artists or to the public.
