One artist begins a drawing and the other finishes it

Collaborating can be wonderful exciting, so you want to test a thing, but you want to keep it definitely uncomplicated to test the water, you develop a drawing (or portion of a drawing) and then send out it to the particular person you have chosen to collaborate with… and then that person could compete the drawing, or increase their personal aspect to it.

Or much better however you could both of those make a drawing and then swap!

And this reminds me of that sport we used to engage in as kids, referred to 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 individual couldn’t see it, then they would attract the head, fold it down and hand it back. And you’d hold carrying out it till you achieved the toes. Then at the end, you would open up up the paper and reveal the odd person you’d equally established.

A sketchbook relay

One more truly amazing notion would be to get together with a group of mates and do a sketchbook relay. So, you would sketch the first webpage, then mail the e-book to the next human being and they would fill the future webpage and so on. Finally, the total reserve would be one large collaboration!

We have thought about performing this for Kick in the Creatives, but the logistics could be a bit difficult mainly because we are all above the earth! But it could be definitely great to do a thing like that.

Edit two parts of artwork jointly digitally

You could each generate one thing by hand and then edit it collectively digitally with a picture editing application like Photoshop.

A person way of accomplishing this is to equally get started with the exact same reference impression. Do your very own interpretation and then see if you can mix the two jointly digitally. Or a single of you could start out so the other can see what they have to operate with.

We did consider that we could maybe do a collab like this. Maybe Tara could draw a confront and then Sandra could attract a piece of fruit or a hand holding a glass and then we see if we could slash them with each other digitally

Several artists draw on an on the internet drawing board

There are on the web drawing boards wherever you can get collectively with on the internet buddies and all draw on the exact board. Tara at the time did this at an on the web event and the results have been incredibly interesting.

A next artists performs in excess of the top rated of your artwork digitally

Another way to collaborate is for one particular of you could produce a piece of art and then the other person operates more than the major digitally. That is the way I have labored with the collaborations I have done. For the reason that the other artists get the job done digitally, I commenced and then scanned in my piece and then they worked over he leading.

Build every other an art box challenge

Another way you could collaborate is by sending each individual other a package deal of art products that the other individual has to make some thing with. This could be the materials that you like to use that may possibly thrust the other particular person out of their comfort and ease zone.

Sandra and Tara did this by sending just about every other art products of an agreed value.

Art postcard swap

So, on our Facebook group, we organise a postcard swap at the commencing of just about every thirty day period. So, any person who wants to do it, puts their name down and then we randomly pick out pairs. Then all those two men and women have to build a postcard and mail it to the other man or woman by the stop of the month. So it not strictly a collab, but it’s a wonderful way of sharing art and so awesome to obtain a little something distinctive in the publish, that’s not a invoice or a piece of junk mail!

Reserve of art or collection of postcards

You could appear together as a team and develop a book of art or collection of postcards – as properly as remaining a awesome piece it could assistance cross advertise you. This would perform nicely if you were heading to attend an celebration in which you could hand them out

Collaborate on art problems you set yourselves

You could collaborate by location each other art problems. This is how we started out working with each other and what obtained me drawing all over again. You can pick out a problem that suits you both even if you solution it unique techniques.

Functioning with a buddy allows hold you accountable

Do an existing art obstacle alongside one another

You could do the exact organised art problem with a close friend. That way you can cheer every single other on and look at notes!

Joint art exhibition or event

An additional way of collaborating is to do a joint exhibition or celebration. Sandra did a joint exhibition a pair of several years back, with her buddy Kerry, who’s also an artist and it really does make it a lot less nerve-wracking, mainly because you have each individual other there for ethical assistance. Also, you have a person else to help with all of the organising, which can be very a headache on your possess.

Tara has organised a collaboration occasion for NFTS. It brings alongside one another 30 artists to do 30 collaborations in 30 times. We have to warn you nevertheless this is very an undertaking to bring 30 people today together, Tara was feeling rather stressed at instances. So you might want to commence little and then develop up to larger collaborations

Collaborate on teaching artwork

You could collaborate on educating art. Is there a thing that you and a good friend would adore to instruct. Why not teach it alongside one another and deliver two perspectives to the table

Collaborate on art in various types

And as we know, art will come in plenty of different varieties. It does not have to be all about visible artwork. You can collaborate on a piece of music, a poem, or it’s possible a story, like Tara and I did.

Or perhaps 1 can produce the e book and the other could illustrate. Just really do not request me to illustrate it if not you’ll however be waiting 3 several years later on!

In actuality it could be any kind of imaginative endeavour blended jointly. I have just lately witnessed some digital artists collaborating with musicians to develop animated art with music

Matters to contemplate when collaborating

1 closing detail and it is an vital factor to consider… If you are imagining of embarking on a critical collab, then make positive you are self-assured that you are a very good match. Bear in mind, you will both will need to be trusted and on the very same web page, or else you may possibly find that you are going to possibly let down the other person or they will let you down.
