Doncaster College is continuing its successful,
inspirational art club for young people for a third consecutive
There will be places for up to 20 young people, aged 14-16,
available at the College, and it will run on Thursday evenings from
4.30pm until 6.30pm. The first one starts on Thursday 11th October
at the Hub. There will be no charge to members for any club
activities, materials or trips.
It was set up in conjunction with the National Art & Design
Saturday Club scheme which was originally started by the Sorrell
Foundation and is supported by DfE, the DCMS, the Paul Hamblyn
Foundation, UBM, Somerset House Trust, Cass Art and the Eridge
Trust. Other partners include Tate Modern, the British Museum, the
National Portrait Gallery, and the Saatchi Gallery.
The idea of the club is to engage and inspire young people aged
14-16, to nurture their creative talent through resources at their
local college or university, and give them the opportunity to
explore the arts and kick start their creative journey.
Club members will have the opportunity to try their hand at a
number of disciplines including Textiles, Fashion, Printmaking,
Photography, Ceramics, Wood & Metalwork, as well as Drawing
This year the College is in partnership with Doncaster Museum
& Art Gallery so that, as the nights draw in, some of the club
sessions will take place on a Saturday morning at the Museum on
Doncaster College is one of a host of colleges across the
country that participates in the scheme.
Among highlights for the coming year will be a trip to the
Victoria and Albert Museum in London on 24th November, where
members will display their artwork. This will be followed by a trip
in May to Somerset House.
