Photography Club, Lynn Weddle, 2019

Saturday Club – Photography Club

Aged 13 – 16 and interested in photography? Come and join our Photography Club!

Photoworks is working with the University of Brighton to offer a new Photography Club as part of the Saturday Club programme.

Photography Club is an artist led programme that will help you develop new technical and creative skills, create your own portfolio of artwork and gain a Bronze Arts Award! It’s also a chance to take part in a professional exhibition organised by Photoworks next summer.

Guided by photographic artist Lindsey Smith and undergraduates, you will work to a broad theme, exploring a range of photography techniques and processes including experimental processes as well as traditional camera skills.

This programme is completely free and takes place in the arts studios at the University of Brighton’s Grand Parade building. You don’t need a camera or any previous experience, just an interest in art and photography. Lunch will be provided.

Sessions take place across six Saturdays from 10am to 3pm and will include a London trip to Tate Modern and the Jerwood Space.
