Banbury and Bicester College

Applications for 2020-21 are now closed. Please register your interest for 2021-22

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 national events including Masterclasses with leading industry professionals and the Summer Show, where all Club members exhibit their work in a public exhibition – all for free!

Club dates:
Autumn 2020 – Summer 2021

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.
