Your Ideas Redditch Update

So it’s time for an update on what’s been going on at Your Ideas Redditch headquarters…

-Two of our amazing members applied for and received a grant to work with other local youngsters in a project named ‘Fix Up Look Sharp’. The grant is from the Princes Trust – Ben Kinsella Trust who support youngsters aged 14-25 to set up their own project to help promote anti-gun, knife and gang violence messages to their local community. We are running a series of workshops creating planters and other wooden goodies to be donated to Noahs Ark Nursery in Matchborough.

-On Thursday 2 of our Art Club members went along to the Matchborough Youth Forum meeting to find out more about the group. They visited at the right time as the group were treated to a tour of the town hall – including a question and answer with the Mayor of Redditch Anita Clayton in her parlour! Our members loved it and are planning on getting more involved.

Too much art, not enough space!

The Art Club have been working so hard for their upcoming exhibition that they have been creating work at an alarming rate.

We now have so much art work so we will have a tough job choosing what to exhibit!

Here is a snapshot of what they get up to at the club and their latest creations, coming to an exhibition space near you soon… If you live near Redditch that is! Enjoy!

Art Angel of Matchborough update

So our beautiful Art Angel Gabriel is nearing completion after the gold spraying of his wings this week thanks to Jez from our Arrow Vale group.

He is also sporting some very abstract and glamourous underwear which we are sure will soon be seen on catwalks around the world!

All he needs now is some more sparkly detail on his wings to make him even more amazing and he will be ready to be displayed as part of our Art Club exhibition in a public display space in Redditch. We can’t wait!

Easter Art Club Bonanza

So we are back in the centre after the madness of our Easter holiday art sessions, after a big tidy and sort out we are back to some sort of normality!

Our Easter art sessions comprised of 3 consecutive days of art activities with local youngsters to create masterpieces for our upcoming display as funded by Grants for Arts.

Artist Rich Inwood shared his graffiti skills with the youngsters by constructing a huge mural using 4 large boards, copious amounts of paint and lots of time.

As you can imagine the centre looked like it had been hit by a colourful tornado by the end of the week and we had created some incredible work. Over 300 photos were taken as the camera was passed around the centre over the 3 days, check out the slideshow below to see what we got up to…

Art Club head to Hollywood (Bowl of course)

The end of term for the Art Club can only mean one thing… time for a reward trip for their hard work at Your Ideas.

As there is no funding available through the Art Club grant for reward trips, we have to find something fun but cheap! Luckily for us the staff at the Hollywood Bowl in Great Park Rubery were very accommodating and offered us a great group discount for our visit.  Continue reading

Caught on camera at Your Ideas!

I raided the webcam pics at Your Ideas this week and found a collection of photos that I had to share.

Here you can witness some of the unusual going ons at the project and what happens when young people find out how to use the photobooth on our Macs! (These are only the ones on my computer, will upload some more beauties if I can stealth them off other ones ;))

Enjoy!! 🙂
