Week 2 Creative Communities

So it's week 2 and I've been busy with lots of classes. The response this week has been fabulous with lots of people coming up with some great message. Thanks to the Seaton ladies, Seaton rehab recovery group, the volunteers and those who came to the drop in session. I'm looking forward to tomorrow's 'Family fun day' at Seaton community project and ending the week on a high.
Here is a little look at some of what's been made this week -

Spreading the LOvE in Seaton - Temporary public art with a positive message

We made mini packets with positive messages to create a art piece at the bus stop. The packets are free for people to take on their journey. There will be more packets added throughout next week.
Some of the art work created today :)
We wrote positive messages we wanted to share with the world ..

Creative Communities

Spread the love

Creative Communities comes to Seaton

During January and February 2014 Monica Wisniewski will be the lead artist working with the Creative Learning Team to deliver arts workshops and events in Seaton. Monica will work with local people to use traditional craft skills to make some temporary public art.

My current art practice explores emotions and connections we have in our day to day lives. I aim to create positive art through colour, texture or text, I love to use many different materials and am currently exploring public art to express my positive messages. I have also found blogging to be an inspirational and useful outlet for my creativity.”
Monica Wisniewski, artist

This project will explore different materials and traditional craft skills to create artworks that will contribute to a temporary public art piece. As the project develops new work will be displayed publicly in Seaton, promoting a positive message about the local area and its people. Keep an eye out for artworks appearing in the area or come along to workshops and events to make your own and contribute to bigger group pieces.
