Hello! I love to do art collaborations! I’ve collaborated with a lot of people and groups of people throughout my art making career, from individuals to school groups to nonprofit organizations and groups of children, including patrons of the DuPage Children’s Museum. It’s really fun to work with kids and see their faces when I show them a piece of art that I created using their artwork.
Here is an example of collage art I created using flowers made in a preschool class. The collaborative project included a flower making workshop and a story with the kids. I used the beautiful flower collages they created during the workshop, then added my own collage materials and hand-painted details like the vase and butterfly.
During the pandemic, I collaborated with the Arts and Maker Specialist at the DuPage Children’s Museum, Dustin Thacker, to create four hours of art instruction videos leading to a collaborative art project based on native prairie plants and animals. We worked virtually with the kids, commenting on the art they submitted in a shared online art gallery and led live workshops via Zoom. After all of the art was submitted, I collaged the kids’ beautiful art into a large, colorful collaborative artwork that is hanging in the museum. You can purchase the program and assemble the art on your own, or with my help.
Here is a short video preview of some of the projects:
And, here is a video showing how the kids’ art was assembled:
