Applications for 2020/21 are now open.  Please contact the Club to register.

At the University of Central Lancashire Art&Design Saturday Club, we run a year of exciting and engaging creative workshops exploring various art and design processes. Our programme will cover drawing, illustration, graphics, painting, ceramics, printmaking and sculpting.

The Saturday Club is a unique chance for Club members to build an art and design portfolio, with no pressure of assessment. Members have the opportunity to experience and use state-of-the-art facilities and receive expert tuition from the University of Central Lancashire tutors and student ambassadors.

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.

This is an amazing opportunity that’s too good to miss. It’s free, it’s on the doorstep for many of our pupils and will give them a chance to try out a host of new activities.

It’s great to have the time to focus on being creative. I think this is a fantastic initiative that will give lots of young people a chance to get really involved in art, especially as it’s free. It restores art as a necessity rather than a luxury.

Creative industries are an essential part of the UK economy and through the Saturday Club, we’re taking the excellent work schools already do and building on it to harness the talents of the next generation.

It’s like a mini art school. The young people will be able to try their hands at ceramics, painting, sculpting and drawing to name a few.
