In today’s artwork podcast we are speaking about art collaboration suggestions. We are likely to give you some tips on distinctive approaches you could do the job with other artists and creatives.
A single artist commences a drawing and the other finishes it
Collaborating can be fantastic entertaining, so you want to check out one thing, but you want to preserve it truly uncomplicated to examination the h2o, you generate a drawing (or portion of a drawing) and then send out it to the human being you have picked to collaborate with… and then that person could contend the drawing, or increase their have aspect to it.
Or much better continue to you could equally generate a drawing and then swap!
And this reminds me of that sport we utilised to participate in as children, termed ‘Hats.’ And what you would do, is attract a hat at the top of a piece of paper, then fold it down so the other particular person could not see it, then they would attract the head, fold it down and hand it back again. And you’d keep performing it until finally you arrived at the toes. Then at the stop, you would open up the paper and expose the strange human being you’d both of those developed.
A sketchbook relay
Another seriously amazing strategy would be to get alongside one another with a group of buddies and do a sketchbook relay. So, you would sketch the initial webpage, then deliver the reserve to the upcoming particular person and they would fill the upcoming webpage and so on. Inevitably, the whole reserve would be just one large collaboration!
We have thought about undertaking this for Kick in the Creatives, but the logistics may be a bit challenging since we are all about the entire world! But it could be seriously cool to do anything like that.
Edit two pieces of art together digitally
You could equally create some thing by hand and then edit it collectively digitally with a image enhancing application like Photoshop.
One way of undertaking this is to the two commence with the very same reference graphic. Do your personal interpretation and then see if you can mix the two alongside one another digitally. Or 1 of you could commence so the other can see what they have to function with.
We did feel that we could maybe do a collab like this. It’s possible Tara could attract a facial area and then Sandra could draw a piece of fruit or a hand keeping a glass and then we see if we could cut them collectively digitally
Quite a few artists attract on an on the web drawing board
There are on the internet drawing boards the place you can get together with on the net friends and all draw on the similar board. Tara the moment did this at an on line celebration and the benefits were incredibly amazing.
A second artists performs over the top rated of your art digitally
Another way to collaborate is for one particular of you could develop a piece of art and then the other particular person will work about the top rated digitally. That’s the way I have worked with the collaborations I have finished. Due to the fact the other artists get the job done digitally, I began and then scanned in my piece and then they labored around he leading.
Develop just about every other an artwork box challenge
An additional way you could collaborate is by sending every other a package deal of art materials that the other man or woman has to make something with. This could be the supplies that you like to use that could thrust the other individual out of their comfort and ease zone.
Sandra and Tara did this by sending each individual other art products of an agreed price.
Art postcard swap
So, on our Facebook team, we organise a postcard swap at the commencing of just about every thirty day period. So, anybody who wishes to do it, puts their name down and then we randomly find pairs. Then all those two people today have to create a postcard and send out it to the other person by the conclude of the month. So it not strictly a collab, but it is a charming way of sharing art and so pleasant to receive a thing specific in the submit, that’s not a monthly bill or a piece of junk mail!
Reserve of artwork or selection of postcards
You could come together as a team and create a e-book of artwork or assortment of postcards – as very well as getting a nice piece it could support cross advertise you. This would perform well if you ended up heading to go to an celebration the place you could hand them out
Collaborate on artwork difficulties you set yourselves
You could collaborate by placing just about every other art worries. This is how we started doing work together and what got me drawing yet again. You can pick a challenge that suits you the two even if you tactic it unique means.
Working with a mate assists keep you accountable
Do an current art challenge together
You could do the same organised art obstacle with a pal. That way you can cheer just about every other on and examine notes!
Joint art exhibition or celebration
Yet another way of collaborating is to do a joint exhibition or celebration. Sandra did a joint exhibition a pair of many years in the past, with her close friend Kerry, who’s also an artist and it genuinely does make it much less nerve-wracking, because you have every single other there for ethical aid. Also, you have another person else to enable with all of the organising, which can be really a headache on your individual.
Tara has organised a collaboration occasion for NFTS. It delivers with each other 30 artists to do 30 collaborations in 30 times. We have to alert you even though this is quite an endeavor to convey 30 persons with each other, Tara was experience very stressed at occasions. So you might want to start out modest and then create up to even larger collaborations
Collaborate on training artwork
You could collaborate on educating artwork. Is there something that you and a buddy would enjoy to teach. Why not educate it collectively and bring two views to the desk
Collaborate on artwork in distinct forms
And as we know, art comes in loads of distinctive forms. It does not have to be all about visual artwork. You can collaborate on a piece of music, a poem, or possibly a tale, like Tara and I did.
Or perhaps a person can compose the guide and the other could illustrate. Just do not request me to illustrate it if not you will nonetheless be ready a few years later on!
In truth it could be any sort of artistic endeavour combined alongside one another. I have not long ago found some electronic artists collaborating with musicians to develop animated artwork with audio
Matters to look at when collaborating
One last detail and it’s an critical detail to consider… If you are pondering of embarking on a serious collab, then make guaranteed you are self-assured that you are a fantastic match. Don’t forget, you will both equally will need to be responsible and on the identical web site, otherwise you might locate that you will both allow down the other man or woman or they will let you down.
