Art Collaborations

Collaborate with Laura Lynne Art

Work with Artist, Laura Lynne, to Create a Memorable Artwork and Experience

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.

Examples of Art Collaborations with Kids

Floral Collages

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.

DuPage Children’s Museum Collaboration & Special Pricing

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.

  • Start by purchasing the 6 video program via the DuPage Children’s Museum website here.
  • Here is a pricing menu if you would like my help either by teaching a workshop, assembling the art, or both:
    • Virtual Zoom Workshops for Nonprofit Schools: $50/hour
    • Prices to assemble the original collaborative art collage are based on the size of the art and the number of children participating.  At least one artwork from each child will be represented in the final art.  (Smaller sizes are available, but not recommended based on the level of detail and number of kids’ artworks to include.)
      • 24×36″ – $800
      • 30×40″ – $900
      • 36×48″ – $1150 (This is the size of the art I did for the DuPage Children’s Museum.)
      • 36×72″ – $2,500
      • 48×60″ – $2,800
      • 48×72″ – $3,500

      • 8×10″ – $26 each
      • 11×14″ – $32 each
      • 12×16″ – $40 each
For the original artwork, I paint the background with acrylic and paint the sides of the wood “canvas” in a darker color.  The kids’ art is printed on archival paper, then cut out and collaged into the design.  Some of the kids’ art is altered a bit to adjust the color of the initial photo, change the size, include fun details, or to work with the composition.  I combine the kids’ art with my art to make the piece harmonious, then coat the art with layers of acrylic medium and a gloss varnish to protect it.
The print reproductions are vivid and of the highest archival quality printed on cotton paper with pigment inks.
*Please note, if your school or organization would like the Vivid Print Reproductions, each participant will need to sign a copyright waiver for their work to be included in the final artwork.
Benefits and Discounts:
  • Digital file fee of $300 waived with purchase of original artwork
  • I’ll be available to answer any questions regarding the art instruction content
  • Package pricing and discounts for nonprofits and schools
