Saturday Art Club
Saturday Art Club is run as a partnership between Nottingham Trent University and the Saturday Club Trust from the autumn to the summer term each year. Aimed at Years 9, 10 and 11, our goal is to give pupils 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, pupils will have the opportunity to try their hand at a variety of different art forms through our free workshops and masterclasses with professional artists. They’ll have access to our excellent Art & Design facilities*, get to meet like-minded young people and make new friends. As well as having lots of fun, Saturday Art Club also looks great on their CV if they decide to apply to college or university later on. There will also be the opportunity for the pupils to exhibit their artwork in a London gallery.*
The club launches on 7 November. Workshops will be held weekly on Saturdays during term-time, from 10am to 1pm, with breaks over the school holidays.
In light of recent government announcements, the club will initially run as live online workshops via MS Teams. Participants do not need a Teams account. Successful applicants will be emailed a link to connect to the session. We hope to return to in-person sessions at NTU's city campus soon.*
The club is completely free!
