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 pupils in Years 9, 10 and 11, we give you the opportunity to get involved in a subject you love, free of charge, at your 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 1 October. Workshops will be delivered weekly on Saturdays during term-time, from 10am to 1pm, with breaks over the school holidays.

…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.
