poems, art, creative activities: COMPETITION ENTRIES

In this blog we have also included competition entries .

After what seemed like the longest time ….. we are now back working on the amazing mosaic, at Mary Smith House with Revoe residents. We will be there for the next 3 sessions on Tuesdays between 5-7pm.

Once the mosaic is finished it will be attached to a prominent wall in Revoe.

We are making really good progress now thanks to last weeks work continuing

This month we have also been working with a group of young people who we hope to be creating a large scale mural with later this year. The group are keen to get involved in graffiti art work and this evening we tested their skills.

Some great work made this evening
The sun was very bright and hot today but the work made was fabulous. Thank you everyone who took part

In June we had our first competition entry from Jean Scott who lives in Revoe.

A great start to the competition.

We are looking forward to working with people face to face again this month.

Using the art packs and the Makezine as inspiration for people to get creative and send entries in to our competition.

Great session this evening in Blackpool with a group of young people.

Chloe’s Collaboration

Chloe’s sitting in the yard,

Making art, it’s not so hard

Sat there making an art book

Filling each page just to see how it looks

Creating stuff just to fill the time

While I sit here writing a rhyme

It seems like the perfect situation

To create this little collaboration
