Student using a camera


Our digital photography course teaches you the fundamentals in a fun, informative and inspirational way. Start your journey to better photography here!

Due to the uncertainty of the ongoing Covid-19 situation, we are currently reviewing the situation for Saturday courses for the Autumn term 2020. Please get in touch if you would like to be added to our mailing list.

Course Details

This course is ideal for novice and amateur photographers in School Years 8-11 (or equivalent if home-schooled) who would like to learn about camera controls and develop an awareness of visual elements and composition.

Following an introduction to Mac computers and basic Adobe Photoshop tools, you will have the opportunity to explore image manipulation and creation. The final outcome will be a presentation and discussion of the resulting images. Throughout the course, other artists’ work and ideas will be introduced to broaden your contextual and visual knowledge.

You will be working in our amazing studio spaces that have been home to our award-winning graduates. We will provide cameras, but students are welcome to use their own camera if they prefer.

Your creative journey with AUB doesn't have to stop at Saturday Art School either; we offer a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design as well as a range of creative degree courses - and you'll already know your way around campus.


This course costs £160 for an eight-week term.

We do offer reduced fees to parents or guardians who receive specific income-related benefits or are in receipt of free school meals for their child (and have an official document showing this).

You will need to contact us prior to enrolling online for more information on the qualifying benefits for a reduced fee place. If you qualify, you will still have to complete the online enrolment form but payment will be taken over the telephone.
