For Clubs - Information About the Art Show





Dear Coordinators and Leaders, this year we are going to host an Art Show! That's right. The Art Campaign will gather artworks from each club culminating in an exhibition in 2019. This will be a fun way for Members to showcase their talent and be part of the wider Jesus Club mission. We’re also using the Art Campaign to gather more prayer and financial supporters. And of course, we want you to be involved.

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.

What It Means for Clubs

In a nutshell, we'd love for the members from your club to contribute artworks. 

What we've got in mind for your artworks:
• We'd love your members to design  artworks around the theme of New Life/New Creation. It could mean caterpillars turning into butterflies, it could mean the resurrected Jesus, celebrating the birth of Jesus at Christmas, or what members love about creation.  
• We'd love the members to demonstrate their creativity. There are no restrictions - you can make artworks as a group or individually, you can make sculptures, collages, paintings or drawings.
• Since the artworks are going to be exhibited to the public, we encourage clubs to use decent quality materials. For example, use acrylic rather than poster paint and high quality paper rather than butcher's paper.
• We've gathered art ideas to inspire you. Visit the Art Ideas page.

What else we have in mind:
• We've gathered some people to be Art Contacts. One of them can visit your club and explain to your leaders what the Art Campaign is all about. 
• The Contact will also attend your club to interview members and take photos of them making artworks.
• Your Contact wants to help your club create great artworks. Discuss with them your ideas, questions or concerns.         
• We've written a special series of 5 lessons for the Art Show. This series was originally called "New Creation" but we have made some modifications to it and it is now called "New Life." You can find these lessons available to download in the resources (leader only) section of the website. You do not have to use these lessons to coincide with the Art Show. This is completely up to you.  
• It's important that members know that their artworks will be used for the purpose of the Art Show, which includes support-raising. We recommend that all clubs give this letter to members and gain their written permission. Letter to members (Word doc), Letter to carers (Word) .
