Museum London’s Youth Council invites all teens to participate once again in the Art-a-thon organized as part of the second annual National Youth Arts Week. From 7:00 pm to midnight, teens are welcome to participate in three free art workshops: Sculpture from 7:00 to 8:30, Life Drawing (with a clothed model) from 8:45 to 10:15, and Painting from 8:30 to midnight. All workshops are taught by professional artists with a wealth of experience to share. No materials are required! After the workshops, members of the Youth Council will stay up all night to complete a collaborative mural, which will be donated to My Sister’s Place, a safe, supportive community for women facing or at risk of homelessness. The Council will work with local artists Jennifer Hamilton and Jenna Powell on the 4’x8’ mural. This portion of the Art-a-thon is only open to those currently registered in the Council!

Tonight we went into the new exhibition Wind Work, Wind Play: Weathervanes and Whirligigs! There were many interesting pieces of art, they were interactive too! They all involved wind (hence the title of the exhibition). Tonight our favourite part of the exhibitions was Bob Bozak’s- The Flying Canoe. It was a floating canoe in the middle of the room! It was carved out of wood.The canoe was very colourful which made the piece much more interesting to look at. There was a couple of men sitting in the canoe and they looked to be paddling. The exhibit was very original and very cool! After all this was a very interesting exhibit to look at!
That is all for this week at Museum London Youth Council,

We only have one more week to work on the apps! And they are finishing up nicely. Due to some time constraints, missed meetings, and technology issues we’ve had some last minute amalgamations where some members are now working in pairs. These pairs have pulled through, started refining their designs with Gerardo, and are now working on their app descriptions. Some members are even past this stage! They’ve finalised their designs and we’ve gone through an editing process with the descriptions. They are pretty much ready to officially present their designs to the group next week! We’re all looking forward to seeing them up on the big screen!
We’ll be sharing the results with you next week!
The Apps Are Nearly Complete!
We’re now very much into the design stage of the apps! Most of the Council members have completed their preliminary drawings and are into the graphic design stage on the computer. Clair and Michelle are coming along with their iEye app, Isabel has been tirelessly working on her Reset button, Sasha’s Money Tree is beginning to materialise on screen, and Nathan with the help with Aulora has nearly finalised his design. Everyone else has finished their sketches at this point and will be handling the graphic design portion next week. It’s exciting to see how far everyone has come! Next up, once the designs are finished on the computer, they’ll be tackling the descriptions of the apps in order to entice users. I’m looking forward to seeing and reading what everyone comes up with! And of course, it will all be posted here.
See you next week!
Our Imaginary Apps!
Tonight two ladies from the Youth Council, Emily and Isabel, went around and did some interviews of other council members, getting the details on everyone’s apps!
What R U Wearing by Emily
The concept of this app is to find out where someone bought their piece(s) of clothing, what the brand is, and which store it is from - all without having to ask the person!
Emily wanted to make this app because she thinks it is helpful if you really like someone’s clothing!
Reset Button by Isabel
This all-purpose reset button gives you an automatic do-over. Perfect for when you have an argument, miss the bus, lose in a game, etc. Also great for doing something fun over and over again!
iEye by Suzie
If you lose or forget your glasses, you can look through your phone and be able to see! This app adjusts to your prescription.
Pocket Doctor by Nathan
Basically, what this app does in a minute, you would have to wait a year to see a doctor for! This app can ease your medical concerns by taking an x-ray, scanning a lump in your arm, and much more!
Play My Instruments by Kamand
Don’t know how to play an instrument? This app will play it for you! Just place your phone on the instrument and it’ll begin to play.
Spectabular by Natalie
An artist for a hit song will show you how to play the song in a tutorial, while it displays tabs and chords.
Money Tree by Sasha
Need money? Just shake your money tree! Download this app, give your phone a shake, and it’s raining money.
Weather Bubble by Nika
Say you are walking the dog and you feel a little cold, just use this app to change the weather! You can select the season, temperature, and whether it’s raining, snowing, or sunny out. It then keeps you in a bubble with the settings you chose!
That’s everyone for tonight! Hopefully next week those who were missing tonight will be here!
Emily and Isabel
P.S. Will try to put photos in another post. The upload is taking forever! It doesn’t seem to be working so well …
