Saturday Art Club

The Saturday Art Club is a free initiative for 14–16 year olds aiming to nurture young people's talents, by developing their skills and increasing their confidence in the Creative Arts.

Members are given an insight into studying at university, as well as an understanding of careers in the creative industries.

Coventry University is proud to be working in partnership with the Sorrell Foundation to provide young people with the opportunity to study art and design every Saturday morning for 30 weeks, for free!
