Experts to meet young talent
Aspiring young artists and designers will have an opportunity to develop their creative talents under the guidance of industry experts when the University of Lincoln opens its doors for a national art and design initiative starting this week.
The university's School of Art and Design has joined the Sorrell Foundation network to host the National Art and Design Saturday Club, which will provide a free 30-week programme of in-depth tuition for 35 teenagers aged 14 to 16 years old from across the region, and places are still available for anyone wanting to join in.
As well as attending Saturday morning classes in specialisms ranging from interactive and product design to fine art and fashion, club members will have the opportunity to exhibit their work locally and in London later this year with work focusing on self-portraits for a show.
Founded and funded by the Sorrell Foundation, a charitable organisation dedicated to inspiring creativity in young people, the Saturday Club aims to nurture talent, build confidence and provide a valuable insight into further education, higher education and careers within the industries.

David Bramston, principal lecturer for enterprise at the University of Lincoln's School of Art and Design, brought the Saturday Club to Lincoln and will lead the programme of talks and workshops.
He says: "The Lincoln School of Art and Design is involved in many national and international projects in addition to supporting creative initiatives regionally.
"The opportunity to engage with the Sorrell Foundation's National Art and Design Saturday Club enables local teenage artists and designers to encounter a diverse range of creative disciplines."
As part of the Saturday Club, there will also be the opportunity to attend a one-off master-class hosted by one of the country's foremost artists or designers.
The Saturday Club starts on Saturday, October 5 and will be hosted in the University of Lincoln's new Art and Design Building on the main Brayford Pool campus. Club members will be welcomed to the programme by Dr Alec Shepley, Head of the Lincoln School of Art and Design. A few places still remain and anyone would like any more information on this Saturday Club or future programmes should contact Tia Saunders by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
