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 see their artwork on display in a London gallery.
Starting in the Autumn term, workshops will be held on Saturdays with breaks over the school holidays. Sessions usually last around 3 hours. Exact timings will be confirmed in September.
Due to the ongoing situation regarding Covid-19, we are continually monitoring and planning for the club’s relaunch in the Autumn, and the safety of our club members is our top priority.
Further details including the format and start date will be released in September. We are likely to have a mix of online and in-person sessions at Nottingham Trent University city site, but this will be confirmed nearer the time. Our practices will be informed by NTU Policy and the Saturday Club Trust, and will comply with social distancing guidance.
The club is completely free!
