What does it involve?

Now in its sixth year, the club offers FREE Saturday classes from October to April. 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 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.

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.
