Banbury and Bicester College

Now entering its sixth year as part of the National Saturday Club, Banbury and Bicester College offers an inspiring and varied programme. Members are encouraged to explore their creativity, develop new skills and become familiar with the college environment and its high-level facilities. The art and design techniques that Club members investigate include photography (darkroom and digital), graphic design, animation, printmaking, textiles, fashion, ceramics, 3D, painting and drawing.

Last year, several parents commented that not only had their children made new friends and become more confident over the year, the Saturday Club had helped them to be more creative. It had also inspired them to pursue more creative subjects either at GCSE level or in further education.

Club members will also take part in three National Events; the London Visit, in which club members take part in a pop-up self-portrait exhibition and visit the capital’s museums and galleries; a Masterclass with a leading creative industry professional; and the Summer show where all club members exhibit their work in an exhibition in Somerset House, London – all for free!

The Masterclass experience transforms a Saturday Club into a real taster of what it could be like to be working and creating as a professional.

Members felt connected to a huge creative network. Several told me the London Visit was eye-opening. Seeing so many different approaches to making a self-portrait, they were astonished and inspired by the diversity.

The benefits of the Saturday Club are numerous, from encountering and exploring new art media and techniques to enabling self-expression at a very important stage of a teen’s life.
