Nottingham Trent University
Nottingham Trent University’s Art&Design Saturday Club is a great opportunity to take part in exciting opportunities across the School of Art and Design. This year the programme includes green screen video editing, dark room photograph developing and much more!
It’s a wonderful chance to try out the amazing facilities that we have including specialist printing and ceramics facilities and the darkroom to develop photographs. In 2017/18 we worked with the ARTS COUNCIL COLLECTION AND YORKSHIRE SCULPTURE PARK and we hope to run a similar trip this year too. We want our members to have creative freedom to express their ideas, have lots of fun and make friends at the same time.
As part of the National Saturday Club programme, our club will take part in three national events. During the London Visit, our members will create a pop-up exhibition of their own work and visit the capital’s leading museums and galleries. There will be a Masterclass with an industry professional and finally the Summer Show, where all club members from around the country exhibit their work at Somerset House in London – all for free!
Urvi, who took part in 2016 said: “From the Art Club, we learnt a massive range of new exciting skills such as screen-printing, calligraphy and photography. Of course, we learnt a lot about different artistic techniques but 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.”
