Plymouth College of Art’s Young Arts programme was established in 1988. Young Arts also offers local participants the chance to join one of the National Art & Design Saturday Clubs, a UK-wide initiative - in 2019/20 there were 67 Clubs and 1,500 Club members in 52 locations nationwide. National Art & Design Saturday Clubs provide members with an array of transferable skills that are greatly sought after by employers in the UK’s thriving creative sector and beyond.

The combination of imaginative thinking and technical skills that is at the heart of every Art & Design Club’s programme is the foundation for a diverse range of careers, including animation, architecture, photography, illustration, graphics and fine art.

Applications are now closed for 2021/22. Applications after January will be added to a waiting list as late places may become available. If you are offered a late place after 31st January you will be automatically able to continue onto the next year's course in September 2022.
