The National Art&Design Saturday Club offers young people aged 14–16 the unique opportunity to study art and design every Saturday morning at their local college or university for free.
Now in its fifth year, the Saturday Club runs in 33 locations across the UK, in colleges, universities and at the Victoria and Albert Museum. As well as more than 100 hours of specialist tuition, young people also benefit from visits to museums and galleries, Masterclasses from leading art and design practitioners and an exhibition of their work in London’s Somerset House.
The Summer Show, which marks the end of the year, reinforces the nationwide scope of the Saturday Club programme and treats the creative work of young people seriously. Featuring work by every Club member, it is visited by 3,000 people.
This year the Summer Show is once again taking place in the Embankment Galleries at Somerset House.
Tutors have selected pieces from across the range of disciplines and projects they have taught this year, and some have included work from the Masterclasses, too.
We have students from across Lincoln involved in the visit, with Dave Bramston, Principal Lecturer of Art & Design coordinating the Saturday Club, and Ali Shepley leading their previous trip to Milan.
