Creates Virtual Arts Club!


What is “Creates”?

  • “Creates” is a Virtual Arts Club, run by Created to Create, a program run by Northumberland Youth Unlimited. 
  • A place where youth meet virtually to learn and create together and to find out what it means to be truly creative.

What makes up a “Creates” Club meeting?

  • A fun activity
  • God Talk time understanding our creativity and where it comes from
  • An opportunity to learn a new creative skill. Sessions are limited to 8 youth.

Who can join and how can I register?

  • Youth ages 10-16.
  • Register below. No cost!

What is being offered?

  • Stop Motion Animation. Learn how to shoot stop motion animation videos using objects and words.
  • Optical Illusion Art. Have you ever seen an optical illusion? Something that made you stop and look at it again to figure out what it was? We’ll explore how to create various optical illusion artworks using shapes, colours, and lines to make images look as if they are moving, leaping off the page, or transforming into another form.
  • Zentangles. The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. We call these patterns – tangles. You create tangles with combinations of dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves, and orbs. It would be helpful if you had access to a computer and a phone or tablet. Mounting the tablet or phone over your artwork will allow the instructor to view what you are doing and give you some personal instruction. Youth will receive a kit bag filled with the art supplies needed for this session

When, where, how do we meet and what do I need?

  • Mon. Apr. 12 – Thurs. Apr. 15. You can select one option or all three!
  • Meetings take place on Zoom.
  • You will require at least one of the following: computer or tablet for Zoom. For Stop Motion Animation, you will need an additional smartphone. A smartphone is an asset for Optical Illusion Art, but not required.

How do I get my supplies? 

  • Where possible we will endeavour to deliver supplies to youth within Northumberland County (although the club is open to non-Northumberland County residents)
  • Additional supplies needed for Stop Motion Animation: a cell phone and the Stop Motion Studio app (Apple, Android). The app is free but you can purchase a special effects and music package for under $8.00. This package is not required, but is recommended. 

How can others see what I’ve created? 

  • You will be invited to share your work with us, whether it be digital picture or video format. We will compile all submissions into a highlight video to be shared on our social media platforms and YouTube channel.
