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.
Recommended age: 3-12yrs.
Take some coloured tape
Add it to some more tape to make a…
Everyone has different ideas
Interesting view from the balcony
Tape It is really fun!
I went to this on the 19th January 2011 with my brother and mum. It was conducted at ArtPlay over 6 days.
I would recommend this for ages: 3-12yrs.
Here are some photos of my brother and I doing Tape It! Sometimes we made our own tape it picture and at other times we added to that of others.
Mum added more tape on the umbrella to finish a work of art!
Colouring in this girl with tape was excellent.
Here is our video clip:

I attended this on 14th March 2011 at ArtPlay.
This is the tangled web.
What you do is get a ball of elastic and tie it to another piece up already, then just go walking through the web with the ball in your hands.
I really liked it. My ankle got tangled several times but my brother got his whole body tangled in it!
Rescuing Josh from the hungry spiders (my poem) – No spiders actually were there on the day!
Even Spiderman couldn’t make his way through
So it’s up to me, to rescue Joshua
Cause he’s my brother
Using my flexibility, I can reach him
Now just have to pull him out
Great! I rescued him.
Recommended age: 5-12yrs.
Here are some photos of my brother Josh and I in the tangled web:
As you can see we got very tangled in the web!
Here is a video clip of us in the web:
