We are over halfway through the shed pimping now and all is going well.

Today we made the shed into giant wheelbarrow, the artists explained how longer handles will make the shed easier to move.

We started making an A frame roof for the shed.

Some YP helped make speaker boxes and finished off the bench inside.

We also moved the shed into the park to see what it would look like.

Wednesday – a fresh day of shed pimping

We continued to build the shed stage and put hinges on the shed doors.

We also completed part B of our books, some of us have now been an audience twice.

On Tuesday, we went to the cinema to do part b of the art award. We watched red 2.

 On Wednesday, we then completed part B of our arts award.

It was a very adventourous day, we got to go to a city, on the train. When we arrived we walked to Frankie and Bennies and had a 2 course lunch.

We then went to see Red 2 at 3:10pm.

Red2 was really good, the action scenes were really good.

The shed is looking really good now, we have been designing graffiti, inspired by our trip to Nelson Street and have sprayed the sides of the shed with our designs.

Trip To Nelson Street, Bristol

Posted: 31st July 2013 by wiltshiresummerarts in Uncategorized

On Tuesday 30th July, we went to Nelson Street, in Bristol.

One young person said ” We were exploring the sites of Bristol and saw the graffiti. There were various types of graffiti, one was leading on to another one…. It was all on one street”

“We got a mcflurry”

“We also saw some gromet sculputes, they are all over bristol”

“I liked the lady and the baby because it was realistic”

“I liked the one above the cafe, I didn’t even realise it was graffiti, I just thought it was a picture”

“I liked the ones that must have been dangerous to do, like standing on the edge of a building”
