The UCL East Saturday Club in Art and Design is a free weekly art and design workshop for Years 9,10 and 11 living and/or attending schools in the East of London. For some of these students Art is not on offer for GCSE at their schools.
This term's Saturday Club began on Saturday 4 November 2023 with 25 students, the Slade is leading seven sessions, organised by Sandra Smith, Slade Summer School and Short Course Coordinator. This session involved working with light, making delicate lumen prints alongside classic three tone painting exercises, all with plants.
There are seven sessions, which move through working with light, drawing, geometry and pattern, casting, video, sound, performance and broadcasting. All sessions are intertwined and related to questions about the human/non human.
