The Art&Design Saturday Club is such great fun, it provokes our creativity and gives us the opportunity to use different mediums we have not used before. Our tutor lets us experiment with whatever technique we choose and it’s great to have that kind of freedom.

It was an amazing experience seeing our work exhibited at Somerset House, along with art work created by other young people from lots of other places.

The Art&Design Club has given me more confidence to make friends and pursue my interests. I also feel more confident in going to college when school is over
