University Campus Suffolk’s Family Art Club this month will be on the theme of ‘Everyday Treasure in Everyday Life’.

Taking place on Saturday March 19 in the Waterfront Gallery at UCS, the monthly art club aims to introduces young people to a contemporary art gallery giving them the opportunity to really explore the exhibitions and create a piece of art work that response to the show.

Carol Gant, Arts Curator at UCS, said: “‘Every Day Treasure for Everyday life’ responds to our current exhibition ‘The Psychopathology of Everyday Life’ which focus on interesting objects and the stories they tell. We are encouraging everyone to bring with them a cherished object that holds significant memories for them i.e. a toy or a favourite book.”

“The Family Art Club is a place to develop and extend creativity. Our artists and volunteers aim to support children and carers to look closely at artworks, talk about what they see, make creative choices and try out new techniques. It’s a space for the whole family to enjoy and make together.”
