i have been dreaming this fun project for a while now. The details were bogging me down a little and keeping me from seeing it through. So i am doing what i always do; throwing details out the window! i have decided to do 3 TRIAL collaborations and play this idea by ear, test the process and see if it’ll fly.
What the heck am i talking about, you say?
Well, imagine that your favorite kiddo receives super mysterious package from me on the front doorstep, all cute and purdy. Upon opening the package, you find a blank canvas or piece of watercolor paper + instructions titled “STEP 1.”
You then help your child complete STEP 1 and pack it all back up and send it back to me. Then i complete super mysterious steps of my own…..adding my touches to your piece…..and….you guessed it! I send it back to you with instruction for STEP 2.
We continue like this til we’ve each done 3 steps and have what can only be considered a MASTERPIECE of COLLABOR-ICIOUS-NESS! Then i sign it, photograph it, and send it back to you one last time.
YES! YOU GET TO KEEP IT! And yes, your child should sign their name really big next to mine. And yes! i fully expect a photo of ya’ll and the finished art to post on my page and show off. : ) The whole thing is a little bit tag-team-art-making and a little bit mini-art-lessons as we go.
Sound like fun? Interested?
Drop me a line or comment here if you’d like the nitty gritty info on involved costs/materials and such. Hopefully, i’ll find 3 willing artistes to help me try this crazy plan out!
update – all trial slots are now full…stay tuned to follow this project along the way!
