Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form – from fashion to digital art, pottery to poetry. Discover Arts Award is an introductory award, designed for ages 5 and above, but is open to children and young people aged up to 25.
To achieve an Arts Award Discover, children and young people collect evidence in an individual arts log of their experiences of:
- taking part in arts activities
- researching artists or craftspeople and their work
- sharing their arts discoveries
The New Art Gallery Walsall has worked with a range of artist-educators to create online workshops and resources that will support children to achieve their Discover Arts Award.
