Youth Work Ireland Cork / Gurranabraher Autumn Newsletter 2013 Teen Art Club
About the Youth Council It is a mix of young people age from 7-‐18yrs from all the groups in the centre. It first started last year as a way to help young people talk to the Board of Directors. We have met 5 times this year, one meeting was held in the Lord Mayors Office! We put this newsletter together, this is our first one. We hope you like it and will also like us on facebook. Thanks!
We worked on a puppet show from before Christmas til summer. We made the puppets out of latex and their clothes and hair out of wool and fabrics. We also wrote the storyline and made the set. There were 5 people in our group. We performed 3 shows, 1 in the centre and 2 at the Fun Day in the park. It was really fun and everyone really enjoyed it.
