Painting the clay

Here's one of the completed clay pieces - Micaiah's wonderful elephant with baby

Micaiah's fantasy

(Micaiah age 13)

Very detailed and striking drawing by Micaiah. I love the blue mist coming from the doors of the hut, and the yellow bolts of lightening against the black sky!

Andrew's "fight" picture

(Andrew age 7)

I love the way Andrew hatched his background and the strong shading, emphasising the drama of the two fighting figures

Daniel's drawing

(Daniel age 9)

Daniel did a very detailed drawing telling an entire scary story!

Week 4 - being scared

(Rowan age 7)

This week we were working on the theme of "being scared". Using our stories, we remembered scary times, and then listened to some scary music.

Some lovely results!

Daniel's picture

Lovely swirling movement with explosions of red. Beautiful pattern. Nice spiky feel around the edges!

Ciara's picture

I love the strong blue background,
And the powerful red curtains.
The figure in the purple dress is ver strong. And the audience is terrific!

Lucy's picture

Beautiful girls, dancing,
In a dark alley. Blackness
Surrounding them. So pretty!
Lovely image!

Andrew's picture

On stage. Shadow figures behind.
Purple curtains. Billowing..
Strong presence.

Michaiah's picture

Pegasus in brilliant colour.
Wonderful blue sky.
Rising from the grey.
Small mouse clinging on.

Week 2

Some really interesting work here, clubbers! Loads of fantastic stories of opera singers and Cinderella.

Rowan's vase is very strong, and sitting on a table, or is it a piano on a stage?

Lucy's Cinderella has a white dove, and a GORGEOUS dress.

Andrew's opera singer is powerful, and has a big audience.

Ciara's opera singer has backing singers and the orange background is very strong.

Lovely work. Lovely use of the oil pastels and soft pastels! Well done all.

Our second sketches

This was our second set of sketches, in response to the music "like a dog chasing cars" from the Dark Knight ( batman) movie.

Lucy's picture ( top left) had a great story attached about being chased through the trees.

Ciara's beautiful house ( top right) has a fairy tale feel to it, with the wonderful bright yellow stars above and steep roofed house.

Andrew's story ( bottom left) was very bloody with lots of fear and menace.

Rowan's ship ( bottom right) is very powerful, with yellow light streaming through it from the sun. Very mythical.

Lovely sketches, guys and girls!

Starting out

The Creativity Club met in Moneystown community hall for the first time on wednesday 29th February.

We had a great first session, with some wonderful creative energy filling the hall. These were our very first sketches, using oil pastels and sift pastels. Our inspiration was the Mission Impossible soundtrack.

In Lucy's sketch (top left) we have a wonderful sense of following her own steps around the hall as she listened to the music, combined with the word "careful" - what you have to be when you are a spy.

Andrew (top right) took us through a very imaginative and detailed story involving men, guns and electricity.

Ciara's sketch ( bottom left) has such strong, vibrant colours. Everyone loved her yellow stars, the face with the heart shaped mouth, and the pattern of blue red and green lines on both sides of the picture.

Rowan (bottom right) produced a beautiful sketch, filling his paper with sweeping dark colours. The sense of movement in this is great.

Well done clubbers! Great sketches!
