The Saturday Art Club is part of the National Saturday Club network and is our free weekly creative drop-in for young people aged 13-16. We are currently running sessions online via Zoom, with material packs posted out in advance to members. Sessions take place 10am-1pm and are co-delivered by artists Amy Leung and Maru Rojas. This is a wonderful opportunity to develop new skills, make new friends, achieve a Bronze or Silver Art Award and showcase your artwork in a national exhibition! If you are interested in joining the 2021-22 club please sign up below.
How do I sign up for Saturday Art Club 2021-22?
What does it involve?
Now in its fifth year, the club offers FREE weekly classes from October to April running every Saturday from 10am-1pm, introducing young people to a range of different art forms and practices. Club members will have the opportunity to explore artworks at the National Maritime Museum and our sister site the Queen’s House. The weekly workshops will be facilitated by a professional artist who will support you to develop new skills in critical thinking and creative practice. You will have opportunities to work across different artistic disciplines from printmaking and textiles to film and animation, exhibit your work, facilitate workshops, visit other galleries and gain an accredited Bronze or Silver Arts Award.
Club members will also take part in three National Events; the London Visit, in which club members take part in a pop-up self-portrait exhibition and visit the capital’s museums and galleries; a Masterclass with a leading creative industry professional; and the Summer Show where all club members exhibit their work in an exhibition in Somerset House, London.
Do I need to bring anything?
All materials will be provided. You’re welcome to come along by yourself or bring some friends.
Does it take place every Saturday?
The club takes place every Saturday from 10am to 1pm during autumn, winter and spring terms only.
Do I need to attend every session?

Before I came to this club I was afraid of speaking to other people, I was so quiet but now I can talk to anyone without any fear.2019-20 Club Member
