Supporting young people into Creative Careers

News

Our work with young people is person-centred and we encourage them to self-lead their time with us. Joseph is interested in creating a model using the 3D printer - he's working out some ideas here using Sculpey.

Last night was our last Digital Art Club session for this term. The young people exhibited  their best work and we invited parents and carers in to see all their hard creative work. We had a crit session before the doors opened - inviting each other to be 'Critical Friends'.

Our young people sessions are mostly self-led and person-centred. However we have been working on a group project that has been using Perth's history as inspiration and research. This week, we played around using the analogue textures from the previous session and combined them with digital drawings. Georgie created this foreboding portrait of Mary Queen of Scots. πŸ‘ πŸ‘‘

We tried out an exercise from Betty Edwards book 'Drawing on the Right Hand Side of the Brain' at Digital Art Club. If you want to get better at drawing you need to quieten down the left hand side of your brain which is always trying to define and categorise. The right hand side of your brain is much better at observing at face value. This exercise turns a sketch by Picasso of Stravinsky upside down to help the drawer see the lines only and not the subject.

We had a fun mark-making workshop yesterday with a group of our young people. Cassy created some really interesting pieces using spray paints and wood offcuts as stencils. She embraced the process and really explored the tools and materials. Next week we'll be developing these creations digitally and exploring how analogue and digital can be combined.

Sneaky peak of a character design getting finalised at Digital Art Club. It's great seeing these artworks evolving as well as seeing the young people's skills and confidence growing. 🀩
