In today’s art podcast we are speaking about art collaboration suggestions. We are heading to give you some solutions on different methods you could operate with other artists and creatives.
A single artist starts off a drawing and the other finishes it
Collaborating can be great fun, so you want to try out something, but you want to retain it genuinely straightforward to exam the drinking water, you create a drawing (or part of a drawing) and then mail it to the person you have decided on to collaborate with… and then that human being could contend the drawing, or incorporate their very own factor to it.
Or improved even now you could both equally make a drawing and then swap!
And this reminds me of that activity we made use of to perform as youngsters, called ‘Hats.’ And what you would do, is draw a hat at the top rated of a piece of paper, then fold it down so the other human being couldn’t see it, then they would draw the head, fold it down and hand it back. And you’d continue to keep performing it right until you achieved the toes. Then at the end, you would open up the paper and reveal the bizarre particular person you’d both designed.
A sketchbook relay
An additional seriously great notion would be to get collectively with a group of good friends and do a sketchbook relay. So, you would sketch the first page, then send the reserve to the up coming particular person and they would fill the following website page and so on. Sooner or later, the complete ebook would be a single significant collaboration!
We have assumed about performing this for Kick in the Creatives, but the logistics could be a bit tricky since we are all around the environment! But it could be seriously cool to do a little something like that.
Edit two pieces of artwork together digitally
You could the two build some thing by hand and then edit it with each other digitally with a photo enhancing application like Photoshop.
One particular way of accomplishing this is to each begin with the identical reference picture. Do your possess interpretation and then see if you can blend the two jointly digitally. Or 1 of you could begin so the other can see what they have to perform with.
We did feel that we could quite possibly do a collab like this. Possibly Tara could draw a face and then Sandra could attract a piece of fruit or a hand keeping a glass and then we see if we could minimize them alongside one another digitally
Many artists draw on an on the web drawing board
There are on the internet drawing boards wherever you can get together with on the net close friends and all attract on the very same board. Tara the moment did this at an on the web function and the outcomes have been pretty interesting.
A next artists operates above the major of your art digitally
An additional way to collaborate is for one of you could create a piece of art and then the other individual is effective over the prime digitally. That is the way I have labored with the collaborations I have carried out. Because the other artists do the job digitally, I started and then scanned in my piece and then they worked above he major.
Develop each and every other an art box venture
One more way you could collaborate is by sending every other a offer of art products that the other particular person has to produce anything with. This could be the resources that you like to use that may well drive the other person out of their comfort and ease zone.
Sandra and Tara did this by sending each individual other art elements of an agreed worth.
Art postcard swap
So, on our Fb team, we organise a postcard swap at the beginning of each month. So, any individual who would like to do it, places their title down and then we randomly pick out pairs. Then these two individuals have to develop a postcard and send it to the other person by the end of the thirty day period. So it not strictly a collab, but it’s a attractive way of sharing art and so wonderful to obtain a little something specific in the article, that is not a monthly bill or a piece of junk mail!
Reserve of art or assortment of postcards
You could come collectively as a group and generate a book of artwork or assortment of postcards – as very well as staying a nice piece it could support cross encourage you. This would do the job effectively if you had been going to attend an event in which you could hand them out
Collaborate on art difficulties you established yourselves
You could collaborate by location every other art troubles. This is how we begun operating jointly and what obtained me drawing again. You can opt for a challenge that suits you equally even if you method it distinctive techniques.
Performing with a friend can help keep you accountable
Do an existing artwork obstacle jointly
You could do the exact same organised artwork obstacle with a pal. That way you can cheer just about every other on and look at notes!
Joint art exhibition or celebration
One more way of collaborating is to do a joint exhibition or occasion. Sandra did a joint exhibition a pair of many years ago, with her mate Kerry, who’s also an artist and it actually does make it a lot less nerve-wracking, for the reason that you have every other there for ethical support. Also, you have an individual else to help with all of the organising, which can be really a headache on your possess.
Tara has organised a collaboration celebration for NFTS. It brings alongside one another 30 artists to do 30 collaborations in 30 times. We have to warn you however this is really an endeavor to bring 30 people today alongside one another, Tara was emotion fairly pressured at moments. So you could possibly want to start out compact and then build up to larger collaborations
Collaborate on training artwork
You could collaborate on teaching artwork. Is there one thing that you and a mate would appreciate to teach. Why not teach it alongside one another and bring two perspectives to the table
Collaborate on art in different varieties
And as we know, artwork arrives in plenty of different sorts. It doesn’t have to be all about visual artwork. You can collaborate on a piece of audio, a poem, or probably a tale, like Tara and I did.
Or probably one particular can publish the guide and the other could illustrate. Just do not talk to me to illustrate it usually you are going to continue to be waiting three yrs later on!
In fact it could be any kind of creative endeavour combined with each other. I have lately witnessed some electronic artists collaborating with musicians to develop animated art with audio
Issues to take into consideration when collaborating
A single remaining issue and it is an important thing to consider… If you are thinking of embarking on a critical collab, then make certain you are confident that you are a fantastic match. Remember, you will the two require to be reputable and on the exact same page, if not you may possibly uncover that you’ll both permit down the other person or they will permit you down.
