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,
This was the session that all the groups hard work finally started to come to fruition. All the brainstorming and ideas development had helped the team create some fantastic visuals. The artists GX2 and CBLOXX came back to the project prepared for a day of painting and full of passion with all the tools and paint needed for the job. This was the day the group’s ideas would start to come to life!!
Before we got going we had a group discussion about safety and talked about everyone should behave. They wrote a new contract of respect and everyone signed up to say they agreed to stay safe and have fun! It was important that we had to wear protective masks to cover our mouths when painting and it was agreed we needed to have a professional attitude when using the aerosols. The group all agreed and it was time to set to work on the mural’s…
While the group were discussing the contract of respect the artists used projectors to outline the mural onto the wall ready for the group to paint.
After the artists had reminded the group about keeping safe with the paint CBLOXX showed the group some spray techniques and how to use the paint effectively. We would start the arts explosion in the teenager room upstairs.
There was a really positive creative atmosphere and everyone was excited about getting to work on the mural.
The group were really focused and took a really professional approach to the work. It was fun working with the artists and the group learnt loads of new skills and worked very well as a team. They were starting to grow in confidence and it was great to see them being creative!!! Everyone got involved…
The painting started to slowly come to life.
It was great seeing the ideas coming alive!!! We even got out the artwork from the previous session to remind ourselves of the ideas we had for colours.
Next GX2 took some of the group into the garden to start work on the shed! She reminded them of the concept; rainbow rain with squirrels holding umbrellas!! CBLOXX stayed upstairs to work on the mural in the teenager room.
First GX2 Gemma showed the group the techniques they would need to create the rain effect. They listened carefully…
But then it was time to unleash the colours…
Keep following the blog for updates and more pictures of the transformation!!!
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! 🙂
