Saturday Art Club
Saturday Art Club is a partnership programme between Nottingham Trent University and the Saturday Club Trust, run from autumn to summer each year. Aimed at Years 9, 10 and 11, we give young people with an interest in Art & Design the opportunity to get involved in a subject they love, free of charge, at their local university.
What will the sessions involve?
From traditional to digital, club members will experiment with a variety of creative techniques in our free workshops and masterclasses with professional artists. This year, we’ll be exploring photography, digital art, illustration, ceramics, print-making, sculpture, green screen video-editing, and much more! They’ll have access to our excellent Art & Design facilities, go on trips and make new friends. As well as having lots of fun, Saturday Art Club looks great on their CV if they choose to apply to college or university later on. There will also be the opportunity for club members to exhibit their artwork nationally at the end of the year!*
The club starts on Saturday 6 November. Workshops will be delivered weekly on Saturdays during term-time, from 10am to 1pm, with breaks over the school holidays.

The club is completely free!

…Thank you to you and your team for the Saturday Art Club. It's given [my child] the opportunity to experience art techniques she probably would not have thought of trying otherwise. She has also been able to include some of the work she has produced [at your club] for her GCSE Art course. ‘…It has also helped her in confirming that she wants to do Art as an option at college in the future.
