In today’s art podcast we are chatting about art collaboration tips. We are likely to give you some strategies on distinct means you could do the job with other artists and creatives.
A person artist starts off a drawing and the other finishes it
Collaborating can be excellent fun, so you want to consider some thing, but you want to maintain it genuinely straightforward to examination the h2o, you create a drawing (or portion of a drawing) and then mail it to the particular person you have chosen to collaborate with… and then that individual could compete the drawing, or incorporate their personal factor to it.
Or better continue to you could both of those generate a drawing and then swap!
And this reminds me of that recreation we made use of to enjoy as youngsters, called ‘Hats.’ And what you would do, is attract a hat at the top rated of a piece of paper, then fold it down so the other man or woman couldn’t see it, then they would draw the head, fold it down and hand it back again. And you’d maintain undertaking it until you reached the feet. Then at the conclusion, you would open up the paper and expose the bizarre individual you’d the two produced.
A sketchbook relay
Another truly great concept would be to get alongside one another with a team of pals and do a sketchbook relay. So, you would sketch the to start with website page, then send the reserve to the subsequent particular person and they would fill the upcoming web page and so on. At some point, the complete e book would be a single significant collaboration!
We’ve assumed about executing this for Kick in the Creatives, but the logistics could possibly be a bit challenging simply because we are all over the world! But it could be seriously amazing to do something like that.
Edit two pieces of art jointly digitally
You could both equally generate one thing by hand and then edit it collectively digitally with a photograph modifying app like Photoshop.
One way of doing this is to both of those commence with the same reference impression. Do your own interpretation and then see if you can mix the two together digitally. Or just one of you could start out so the other can see what they have to do the job with.
We did feel that we could maybe do a collab like this. Probably Tara could draw a experience and then Sandra could attract a piece of fruit or a hand keeping a glass and then we see if we could reduce them collectively digitally
Many artists draw on an on the net drawing board
There are on the web drawing boards the place you can get collectively with on the net good friends and all attract on the same board. Tara when did this at an on-line event and the benefits were being quite amazing.
A next artists operates about the best of your art digitally
Yet another way to collaborate is for a person of you could make a piece of artwork and then the other man or woman performs in excess of the leading digitally. That’s the way I have labored with the collaborations I have performed. Because the other artists work digitally, I began and then scanned in my piece and then they labored above he best.
Create each other an artwork box job
Another way you could collaborate is by sending each individual other a bundle of artwork supplies that the other human being has to create anything with. This could be the elements that you like to use that may well drive the other particular person out of their ease and comfort zone.
Sandra and Tara did this by sending just about every other art resources of an agreed value.
Art postcard swap
So, on our Facebook group, we organise a postcard swap at the beginning of each and every month. So, any one who needs to do it, puts their name down and then we randomly pick out pairs. Then all those two people have to make a postcard and ship it to the other human being by the finish of the month. So it not strictly a collab, but it is a charming way of sharing artwork and so pleasant to get some thing exclusive in the write-up, which is not a bill or a piece of junk mail!
Guide of art or selection of postcards
You could arrive jointly as a group and produce a ebook of art or selection of postcards – as well as becoming a nice piece it could enable cross boost you. This would operate nicely if you have been going to go to an party wherever you could hand them out
Collaborate on art problems you set yourselves
You could collaborate by placing each individual other art problems. This is how we began operating alongside one another and what received me drawing again. You can decide on a obstacle that fits you both even if you method it distinctive techniques.
Functioning with a good friend assists maintain you accountable
Do an current art problem jointly
You could do the identical organised art obstacle with a good friend. That way you can cheer every single other on and examine notes!
Joint artwork exhibition or occasion
An additional way of collaborating is to do a joint exhibition or event. Sandra did a joint exhibition a pair of many years ago, with her good friend Kerry, who’s also an artist and it actually does make it less nerve-wracking, simply because you have each other there for ethical support. Also, you have anyone else to aid with all of the organising, which can be rather a headache on your individual.
Tara has organised a collaboration celebration for NFTS. It brings collectively 30 artists to do 30 collaborations in 30 days. We have to warn you however this is pretty an undertaking to convey 30 men and women together, Tara was experience rather pressured at situations. So you may well want to get started compact and then build up to bigger collaborations
Collaborate on teaching art
You could collaborate on teaching artwork. Is there a thing that you and a pal would really like to educate. Why not educate it with each other and bring two views to the desk
Collaborate on artwork in distinct forms
And as we know, artwork will come in lots of diverse kinds. It doesn’t have to be all about visual art. You can collaborate on a piece of new music, a poem, or perhaps a tale, like Tara and I did.
Or it’s possible one particular can create the e-book and the other could illustrate. Just really do not request me to illustrate it usually you will nevertheless be waiting 3 decades later on!
In fact it could be any type of creative endeavour mixed alongside one another. I have a short while ago found some electronic artists collaborating with musicians to make animated artwork with tunes
Points to take into consideration when collaborating
A person last point and it is an significant detail to consider… If you are considering of embarking on a really serious collab, then make confident you are self-assured that you are a superior match. Try to remember, you will equally need to be dependable and on the similar page, otherwise you may come across that you will either permit down the other man or woman or they will allow you down.
