The Art of Now brings together engaging new artworks by young creators from Venture Arts’ Young People’s Art Club and their outreach schools programme. Imaginative and playful works move between media to encompass painting, ceramics, sculpture, textiles and moving image.


A word from Teddy Flood, Artist – Young People’s Art Club:


I chose the name because it is the ‘art of now’. It’s this generation of artists. It’s fun. It’s capturing this moment.


The Art of Now means once it’s done, people can copy it but it will never be the original piece of art, they can’t beat the original version. I don’t know how to tell you about Young People’s Art Club but you can always be an artist. You can make a small artwork then make it bigger and bigger.
