Jesus Club Art Show





Jesus Club is an initiative to share the love of Jesus with people with intellectual disabilities. Each fortnight people with disabilities and Christian volunteers meet for friendship, food, fun and a lesson from the bible. In 2006 the first Jesus Club program opened and now in 2019 there are 12 churches running the program and reaching over 130 people with disabilities.

In 2019, we  are hosting an Art Show that gathers artworks from our 12 clubs culminating in an exhibition in October 2019. This will be a fun way for our members to showcase their talent to their friends, family and the general public. We are also using the Art Show to gather more people who can support and get involved with Jesus Club. 




Why an Art Show?


• Our members are talented.

    



• Our members love expressing themselves through art.



• It is a chance to show what our members can do.



• It is a chance to show what Jesus Club is about.



• It is also a way to bring together members from the various clubs around Sydney.




Theme

The theme is New Life/New Creation. This theme will be explored in the clubs in a number of ways. Some clubs will be using lessons that have been written on New Life, but others may explore this theme in their own ways. The clubs and members are able to explore and interpret this theme in ways that will be suitable to their own location.


Timeline

Terms 1-2 2019: In terms 1 and 2 of 2019, our 12 clubs will create artworks during the fortnightly Jesus Club program.
