Gorton Visual Arts "All in a days work" Project

This activity was to celebrate World Music Day back on the 21st June 2021. We asked people to decorate, paint, collage, or draw on the vinyl records related to a chosen piece of music, favourite artists or band. We also asked people to play the music while completing this task, thinking of the mood the music put you in, expressing how you feel, and maybe writing some of the lyrics onto the record.

Marie’s Vinyl Artwork.

Tanya’s Vinyl Artwork.

Tanya said “I loved doing this took me a few days but finally managed to finish it I chose to do myself as a musician something I had a idea of doing in the past and loved creating this I changed the design a few times to what I had in mind and just went with it this has been one of my favorites so far my song is written around the record “
