Collaborative Art Journals and Shared Visions in Mixed Media
Throughout history, artists have sought and found ways to collaborate with other artists, to broaden their skills, to share their ideas, to find new inspiration, and to gain more confidence.
In recent years, the Internet has provided artists with even more new avenues for connecting and collaborating.
This collaborative book offered the participants the opportunity to explore a shared vision, to examine a topic from a variety of artistic viewpoints, to work on a common theme with one's individual artistic style, and to reach out to other artists to create a global community.
The artistic collaborations explored in this book encompass a broad swath of art media and come in many forms, including
- art journals, altered books
- three-dimensional pieces
- retreat swaps
- mail art
- virtual exchanges
Heavy on visual inspiration, Collaborative Art Journals and Shared Visions examines various organizational structures for collaborative art projects, offers instructions and tips for organizing such ventures, includes interviews with organizers and participants of collaborative projects, and throws in a healthy smattering of techniques such as how to create books that can be added to as they travel and various binding structures for paper projects.
The publication of the book also launches a unique collaborative project the details of which can be found in the back of book.
Come and join in the fun!
