The Northern School of Art – Hartlepool
The National Saturday Club at The Northern School of Art is an exciting and unique opportunity for Club members to experience a wide range of creative and exciting art and design disciplines such as drawing and painting, mixed media, textile design, ceramics, printmaking and graphic design within a specialist environment.
Club members will receive expert tuition and guidance from staff to develop a portfolio of work without the pressure of assessment. There will be opportunities to exhibit work in London as well as in termly exhibitions within the school itself. The Club encourages long term progression skills and also the opportunity to explore both creativity and individual potential within a supportive, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Members come from lots of different schools and areas so there are opportunities to meet new people and make new friends with a shared interest.
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 the capital’s leading museums and galleries; a Masterclass with an industry professional (see last year’s HERE); and the Summer Show, where all Club members from around the country exhibit their work at Somerset House, London – all for free.

The National Saturday Club is a fantastic and valuable opportunity for members to develop their creative and technical skills in art and design. The opportunity to exhibit in London is a real confidence boost and raises their self-esteem and long-term goals and ambitions
