The young participants 4 weeks of creative effort was given a brilliant send off with music, drama, comedy, poetry, visual art, digital art, sculpture and illustration all at home in the prestigious Paisley Abbey.
Creating comedy scripts and technicolour wigs is all what Kilmarnock is about as Rachel Rostock tutors drama for our young people. Sassy Sarah is, as her name implies, the sassiest salon owner in the West of Scotland and she certainly doesn't like the scruffy looking customers coming into her shop.
Check out the images of them in the making below!
Excitement is in the air in Irvine as the young people gathered their pieces together for display, led by Ruth Switalski the participants have been creating these super interesting sculptures - you might even recognise some from the Irvine Flow video!
The visual arts and digital groups have been sharing the space for some time and it's all heads down for our young artists as they strive to finish their pieces for the showcase in Paisley Abbey.
As the big day of the showcase comes ever closer the young participants at Tannahill have been practicing the music and prepping their pieces getting everything ready!
In this short video, Naomi, one of the Glasgow team, speaks about what she's been able to do as part of the film and acting workshops, how it has helped her build confidence and meet new people. Plus, there are some excerpts from music and visual arts workshops.
With beautifully choreographed dancing along with live music the young Cashback to the Future participants are sure to wow with this fantastic performance. This stunning combination of music and drama disciplines is a joy to see!
Visual arts tutor Ruth Switalski told us the young people quickly embraced the creative processes, quickly grasping the concept of the mask that we all wear in our everyday lives and creating these objects as an interpretation of these ideas. It is nice to see these young people take on these weighty subjects and create such nice art pieces.
Creating a bridge between performance, public and visual art our Edinburgh Cashback to the Future young people showed real confidence and had some fun wrapping themselves in coloured thread, creating these sculptures (with a human element).
A full video of the young participants work will appear shortly on our social media so keep an eye out!
Future chart toppers? We certainly think so.
Our young people in Edinburgh made these awesome sculptures from coloured wool and nails. It's great to see our young visual artists really developing their skills!
We had our visual artists making sculptures from plaster casts poured into the sand and live performances on the beach. It was a great day to get our young creatives thinking about the environment and making art in a public space!
Olivia lay down a nice big piece of plastic to make up for any mess and our young people in Tannahill got clay-ative! An imaginative bunch our young people in Paisley have been making lots of mythical creatures - perhaps an animation project is on the horizon for these young creatives?
Our visual arts participants collaborated to create a striking group painting, stretching out big sections of paper on the floor and making marks with their brushes on the ends of bamboo canes.
Shaving foam printing is spreading out a layer of shaving foam across a flat surface adding a little food colouring or paint then spreading with a paintbrush - once you're happy, place a sheet of paper on top. It lets you create some super cool effects and get thinking about pattern and shape!
The team at Impact Arts work hard to secure over £1.5m of funding per year to provide life changing creative experiences for more than 5000 people.
