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 2018 there are 12 churches running the program and reaching over 130 people with disabilities.

In 2019, we’re hosting an Art Show that gathers artworks from our 12 clubs culminating in an exhibition. This will be a fun way for our members to showcase their talent to their friends, family and the general public. We’re 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 great chance to show what our members can do.



• It's also a great chance to show what Jesus Club is about.



• It is a way to bring together members and leaders from various clubs around Sydney.




Theme

The theme is for the Art Show is New Life/New Creation which can be explored in a range of different ways. Clubs have the option to use the teaching resources called "New Life" which coincide with the Art Show or clubs can link the Art theme with their teaching material in other ways. It is up to the individual clubs how this is explored.






Timeline

2019: Our 12 clubs will create artworks during the fortnightly Jesus Club program. Most clubs will be creating artworks in Term 2 of 2019. We want all our members to get excited and involved. 

Later in 2019: A day-long exhibition will be held in a central Sydney location and will be open to all Jesus Club leaders and members as well as members of the host churches. You can even invite family and friends and anyone else interested in seeing our members' work!
