Manchester School of Art, Manchester Metropolitan University

The Saturday Club at Manchester School of Art is a free project offering young people in school years 9 – 11 the opportunity to come and learn, explore, make, trial, draw, examine, interrogate and take risks through Art and Design workshops held at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Delivered by specialist tutors with support from current students, pupils are offered exciting workshops in a range of creative disciplines. Sessions are fun and relaxed while also allowing young people to learn about the breadth of Art and Design courses on offer at Higher Education. Sessions allows young people to experience exciting and varied creative disciplines giving them a platform to ask questions about further education and careers within the creative sector.

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 Art&Design Club has had a great impact on my daughter. Her communication skills have improved greatly, she’s happier, less anxious and has really gained confidence since she started.
