GROWING WELL

r_clean

Today we are working on the word GROW, and specifically we are working on the letters G & R for our paste up. Over the last few weeks we have been looking at how we will make the letters. We’ve been thinking of all the words that start with these letters that make us think about growth. We have brainstormed and now we are going to experiment with our ideas. It’s good to be making art that is hands on and practical.

 

 

A POND

Amanda and I have been working on a film in photoshop (an animation for our film). We are getting it ready for the Richmond West Primary School art show. We barley got anywhere until the very end when filled in the pond. I had a great time though. Roisin

We are so proud of the 5 artworks we exhibited in light boxes installed on the Athetron Gardens Estate as part of the Gertrude St Projection Festival. Here are some of our thoughts…

we all feel really proud

it was exciting

it was hot and sweaty work, we worked hard, it feels fresh now we’ve made it

we feel proud, happy and relieved

happy because people see our work and relieved and proud

happy I’ve done the best I can

 

 

Stop the Bully

We are really proud to show you our new work “Stop the Bully” that we exhibited as a giant projection on the Richmond housing estate as part of the Space Between Light Festival.

Here are some pictures of the LED throwie installation we made on the Friday night of the Festival. Our families, residents on the estate and visitors helped us make it. It was so much fun and it looked great.

Here are some thoughts on our first exhibition:

l thought it was cool and my favorite part was the fire part and my favorite thing l did was the throws. Kristy

I enjoyed it because it was fun and I think it made people think that they shouldn’t bully. Aisling

I really like our subject so we should do the opposite of bullying. Xanthe

It made me feel more confident when I would get bullied. It also made me think about others. Carissa

I really enjoyed seeing my work on the screen, it made me feel very proud of what I had done. I enjoyed watching it. The message was clear and you could tell how much effort we all put in. Roisin

I enjoyed it because I had never done something like that before. I also liked the concept of the show. I enjoyed doing the animation. I thought it was really fun how we got to draw, colour, create and put it into an animation. Jackie

Hi my name’s Danny. I just enjoyed it because I hadn’t done anything like it before. Danny

When I saw my work I feel happy. Tanya

I liked the message through the short film. It was really fun to make and watch all our hard work go into something to help people who are getting bullied. We could work on making the films connect in some sort of way. Amanda
