Today we spray painted!
The teenage room is complete!
We all worked together to make an honest piece of work.
It looks amazing and is a real reflection of all the people that made this possible. ‘Inspired youth’ totally describes what this project is all about.
Shout out to Kieth, Kritikal, Zoe, Joy and Gemma!
Great day today,
So far the project has been fun and adventurous!!
I have really enjoyed the drawing and getting messy!!
So far it has been good and I am looking forward to the painting so I can get messy!!!
So far on the arts4care project we have written up a contract of respect, explored all the different rooms, created a character, spoken to the artists, ‘stacked amo’ (aka a bank of words) and heard KRITIKAL rap.
I have enjoyed the session on rapping and song writing the most so far because I really like music and song writing.
The wall mural designs are amazing I wouldnt change anything about them!
I am very much looking forward to painting our mural now!!!
The pre-prodution work us about things we NEED to consider when creating something from scratch. From the birth we have seen the others quirky personalities, Liams rapping and work (In which he gave us the techniques to make quality rap/poem). As well, the artists help us to discover the awesome world of street art. I looking forward to next stage where we paint!
I find it pretty moving how all our views are accounted for, and how we have the opportunity to meet so many inspiring people (Shout out to Liam aka Kritikal, Kev and Zoe for making this possible!)
Making memories as we speak. Peace,
Amy-Jo Mook! 🙂
Session two of #arts4care exploded into life with an inspirational live performance by KRITIKAL. The artist and Aspire TV founder ran a lyricism session to give the young people the tool to express themselves through words.
The group then got to work on creating a character they called “Rob” who was 15 and was visiting Hamilton House for the first time. They discussed how “Rob” might feel inside and what might be going on in his life. They wrote how “Rob” felt inside a character they had drawn on some flip chart paper. They said “Rob” was feeling confused and anxious and was quite angry and insecure. They said “Rob” was taking time off school and getting into trouble. We talked about this because we wanted to help “Rob” and in real life new visitors to Hamilton house to feel encouraged and understood so that they could stop “Rob” and other young people like him from going down the wrong track, and for those who already had, helping them feel inspired to get back on track. Some of their words may feature in the art they create with the artists they meet tomorrow! Take a look at “Rob” and see what the group created. Below is how “Rob” was feeling inside.
