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 pupils in Years 9, 10 and 11, our goal is to give you the opportunity to get involved in a subject you love, free of charge, at your local university. Previous Art & Design projects have included: GIF creation, animation, photography, ceramics, sculpture, self-portraits, mask-making and more.


What will I do?

From traditional to digital, you’ll be able to try your hand at a variety of different art forms through our free workshops and masterclasses with professional artists. You’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 your CV if you decide to apply to college or university later on. There will also be the opportunity to see your artwork on display in a central 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.


The club is completely free!

…We learnt a massive range of new exciting skills such as screen-printing, calligraphy and photography… During the trips to London and the galleries, we also learnt a lot more about the world of art and the growing creative industries. At Saturday Art Club, I would say the freedom to experiment with different materials and stuff was probably the best part.
