Bolton School of the Arts, University of Bolton

The University of Bolton Art&Design Saturday Club gives 13-16 year olds the opportunity to attend free Saturday morning classes in their local area.

The aim is to nurture the young people’s talent, build their confidence and self-esteem and give them the opportunity to have a taste of higher education, in addition to introducing them to the School of the Arts and the different careers within the creative industries.

So far, nearly 80% of the Club Members at the University of Bolton have been inspired to consider a future career within the creative industries.

The Club has a fun vibe, where we actively encourage Club Members to be vocal and independent. Projects this year include studio photography, graphic design, animation, illustration, sculpture, textiles, darkroom photography, surface design, fine art and portraiture.

Our Club inspires and nurtures members to grow and believe in their capabilities to succeed in art and design. By setting projects which have no boundaries, just endless creative possibilities, we’ve witnessed individuals bloom and progress over the last year.

My favourite part of the Saturday Club is doing things we don’t do at school.
