Join the Saturday Art School to cover drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, fashion, sculpture and animation, using the University's superb facilities.

What you'll cover

A 'carousel' style programme, children will encounter different art and design subjects each week, broadening their experience whilst developing their knowledge and skills set.

The Saturday Art School offers your young creative the chance to cover a real mix of drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, sculpture, fashion design and animation.

They experience a different activity each week.

You will use all sorts of materials from pencils and charcoal, ink and paint, wire and string, watered down clay and tape- you might even draw using a torch.

You will learn how to develop your skills from simple printmaking techniques to using the University’s professional printing presses.

What you'll do

Besides the techniques and equipment we’ve mentioned, you’ll broaden your understanding of what it means to be a professional artist or designer.

You’ll also learn quite a lot about yourself (like what you’re especially good at, and what inspires you), and you’ll certainly gain loads of confidence. You’ll also go back to school with exciting new skills!

What facilities will you use?

You’ll work in our fantastic and well equipped facilities at the Blenheim Walk Building. Click here to take a virtual tour of the University.

What do you need to bring? 

We'll provide all the materials you will need, though you may wish to bring a snack or a drink for the break.
