Eye Arts Club held a presentation on Saturday for eight young people who have completed their bronze level arts award.

Over the last year, Daisy and Lucy Clelland, Ryan Duce, Suzi Leverell, Josh Mellor, Anna Norburn, Keegan Snell, and Kate Thompson have worked towards the award, which is a national scheme run by Arts Council England and Trinity Guildhall. They have completed challenges in arts participation, arts apprenticeship, researching arts heros and heroines, and reviewing arts events.

Simon Smith, the moderator who assessed their portfolios at 'The Garage' in Norwich, said: "During this moderation I looked at eight extremely lively, personal and well organised portfolios from a group of 11 to 14 year olds who had enjoyed a very varied range of activities at Eye Arts Club. I met four of the young people who were very articulate and enthusiastic about their experiences, and very appreciative of the quality support and encouragement they had enjoyed. Well done everyone!".

Some will now be embarking on the silver arts award, alongside slightly older volunteers at the club.

A group of 13 to 16-year-olds applied for and received funding from the Youth Opportunity and Capital Funds to begin a new project 'Film-It', which will enable them to begin working towards the silver award and make files developed from Eye Arts club projects. They will be using a camera and computer donated by Boom! - an MTV initiative.

Eye Arts Club has also received a Grassroots grant from the Suffolk Foundation to run a new dance and puppetry project for 7 to 18 year olds called 'See My Voice, Hear My Gestures!'.

Eye Arts Club meets for seven Saturdays a term and caters for young people aged seven years and upwards with or without disabilities. For more details contact Liz on 01379 668464.
