Coventry University

At Coventry University Art&Design Saturday Club, we run a year of engaging creative workshops exploring various art and design processes with different practitioners. In 2017/18, our programme covered Caricature art, digital painting using state of the art equipment & software, 2D drawing and sculpture, storyboarding and character design, armature-building and set building, location-based and abstract photography, digital and traditional photography processes and darkroom practice.

The Saturday Club offers Club members a unique opportunity to build new skills and develop creative confidence in a range of artforms and with artists from a wide variety of backgrounds, in a nurturing and non-pressured environment. Members have the opportunity to experience and use our state-of-the-art facilities and receive expert tuition from Coventry University’s tutors and students.

As part of the National Saturday Club programme, the Club will also take part in three National Events: the London Visit, in which members create a pop-up self-portrait exhibition and visit one the capital’s leading museums or galleries; a Masterclass with an industry professional; and the Summer Show, where all Club members from around the country exhibit their work at Somerset House, London – all for free.

Cox St,

This club has reassured me this is a career I want to pursue.

My Saturday Club has made me more confident in every piece of work I do. I’ve learned to work with my failure, instead of giving up.

I feel a lot more confident talking to people now. Saturday Club brings people with common interests together

This has changed my entire opinion of education and I will definitely be taking art in further education.

The club is doing creative work that there is no chance to do at school.

My daughter has really enjoyed the model making.  She’s really enjoying the club and has made good friends and actually can see now that it does relate to what she does in GCSE product design (as she is not doing GCSE art). I think it’s built her confidence around being creative.

Parent, Coventry University

Just to say many thanks to everyone involved in the club as my daughter loves it and she does look forward every time she goes.
