In today’s art podcast we are chatting about art collaboration strategies. We are going to give you some ideas on unique ways you could do the job with other artists and creatives.
One artist begins a drawing and the other finishes it
Collaborating can be great pleasurable, so you want to try out a thing, but you want to hold it actually easy to examination the drinking water, you develop a drawing (or element of a drawing) and then deliver it to the human being you have selected to collaborate with… and then that man or woman could compete the drawing, or increase their own factor to it.
Or greater however you could both of those develop a drawing and then swap!
And this reminds me of that recreation we used to engage in as youngsters, identified as ‘Hats.’ And what you would do, is attract a hat at the best of a piece of paper, then fold it down so the other particular person couldn’t see it, then they would attract the head, fold it down and hand it again. And you’d maintain performing it until eventually you achieved the feet. Then at the conclusion, you would open up the paper and expose the strange person you’d both equally created.
A sketchbook relay
Another truly cool idea would be to get collectively with a group of mates and do a sketchbook relay. So, you would sketch the initial webpage, then send out the ebook to the next person and they would fill the upcoming webpage and so on. Sooner or later, the whole e book would be just one large collaboration!
We have considered about carrying out this for Kick in the Creatives, but the logistics could possibly be a bit challenging simply because we are all in excess of the environment! But it could be really interesting to do a little something like that.
Edit two items of artwork with each other digitally
You could equally produce one thing by hand and then edit it alongside one another digitally with a photograph enhancing app like Photoshop.
One way of carrying out this is to each start out with the very same reference graphic. Do your own interpretation and then see if you can blend the two with each other digitally. Or a person of you could start so the other can see what they have to perform with.
We did assume that we could potentially do a collab like this. Perhaps Tara could attract a encounter and then Sandra could attract a piece of fruit or a hand holding a glass and then we see if we could minimize them with each other digitally
Various artists draw on an online drawing board
There are online drawing boards where by you can get with each other with on the web close friends and all draw on the same board. Tara as soon as did this at an on-line celebration and the success were very interesting.
A second artists works in excess of the major of your art digitally
An additional way to collaborate is for a person of you could build a piece of art and then the other human being is effective around the top rated digitally. That’s the way I have labored with the collaborations I have accomplished. Due to the fact the other artists get the job done digitally, I started and then scanned in my piece and then they labored above he major.
Produce each individual other an artwork box project
Another way you could collaborate is by sending every single other a deal of artwork supplies that the other person has to generate anything with. This could be the components that you like to use that could possibly thrust the other individual out of their consolation zone.
Sandra and Tara did this by sending every other art components of an agreed benefit.
Art postcard swap
So, on our Facebook group, we organise a postcard swap at the starting of every thirty day period. So, everyone who needs to do it, puts their name down and then we randomly pick out pairs. Then individuals two individuals have to generate a postcard and ship it to the other human being by the finish of the thirty day period. So it not strictly a collab, but it is a attractive way of sharing art and so awesome to obtain anything specific in the submit, which is not a invoice or a piece of junk mail!
E book of art or assortment of postcards
You could appear together as a group and make a reserve of artwork or selection of postcards – as properly as getting a good piece it could assist cross endorse you. This would function effectively if you have been going to show up at an occasion exactly where you could hand them out
Collaborate on artwork troubles you established yourselves
You could collaborate by setting each and every other art problems. This is how we started out doing the job with each other and what acquired me drawing once again. You can select a obstacle that suits you the two even if you method it different techniques.
Operating with a mate can help keep you accountable
Do an current art obstacle with each other
You could do the identical organised art obstacle with a good friend. That way you can cheer each other on and examine notes!
Joint artwork exhibition or occasion
One more way of collaborating is to do a joint exhibition or celebration. Sandra did a joint exhibition a few of decades in the past, with her mate Kerry, who’s also an artist and it truly does make it less nerve-wracking, for the reason that you have just about every other there for moral support. Also, you have another person else to enable with all of the organising, which can be really a headache on your possess.
Tara has organised a collaboration celebration for NFTS. It brings together 30 artists to do 30 collaborations in 30 times. We have to alert you however this is quite an enterprise to carry 30 men and women with each other, Tara was emotion pretty pressured at times. So you may well want to commence little and then make up to even larger collaborations
Collaborate on educating art
You could collaborate on educating art. Is there one thing that you and a close friend would appreciate to instruct. Why not train it together and deliver two perspectives to the table
Collaborate on art in different types
And as we know, artwork will come in heaps of various varieties. It doesn’t have to be all about visual art. You can collaborate on a piece of songs, a poem, or probably a tale, like Tara and I did.
Or it’s possible one can create the reserve and the other could illustrate. Just do not inquire me to illustrate it usually you will nonetheless be ready 3 yrs later on!
In reality it could be any kind of artistic endeavour combined together. I have just lately noticed some digital artists collaborating with musicians to develop animated artwork with new music
Issues to consider when collaborating
1 final detail and it’s an vital thing to consider… If you are wondering of embarking on a significant collab, then make absolutely sure you are assured that you are a fantastic match. Recall, you will equally need to be trustworthy and on the very same site, or else you may obtain that you are going to possibly allow down the other man or woman or they will allow you down.
