I went to this on the 13th November 2011 (workshop) followed by a party on the 26th November.
There was a DJ (Disc Jockey), VJ (Video Jockey) and a Producer. At the workshop, we split into groups.
My group stayed with the DJ’s and learnt about the special equipment that they used. We got to have turns at using the equipment.
When we were with the VJ, we learned how to combine pictures together, and attach cool borders to them. We also made some of our own art, while the other group put our artwork under the projector and mixed it to music.
2 weeks later we went with our families to the DJ Art Kids Party where we got to see our creations displayed on a big screen while we danced to cool music. There was even some Willy Wonka music mixed in – which was interesting!
I thought that this activity was fun and enjoyable, and I think that it was great 🙂

I went to this with my family on the 11th September 2011.
This was the seventh annual ART PLAY BIG DRAW.
We had to use ‘rule base drawings’ – rules like game rules – where you need to learn the rules of the game in order to take part. Easy and simple directions were given for various activities.
Some of the things I took part in with my family were:
You have to stand in front of a projector, and someone else traces over your shadow.
Here my dad is tracing my brother’s shadow.
Electrical Tape Drawing
This was my favourite activity. All you have to do is draw anything you like using only tape.
This is my tape robot.
Basic shape draw
Just draw things using basic shapes.
I have drawn a caterpillar’s face.
3D type drawing
This one was a little hard. You have to make a picture look 3D by shading it in certain places. It was fun, even though I found it challenging.
Overall the activities were fun and creative.
