Arts Award Discover
Arts Award Discover is an introductory award, designed for ages 5+ but open to anyone up to the aged of 25. To achieve and Arts Award Discover, children and young people collect evidence in a individual arts log of their experiences of:
- taking part in activities
- researching artists or craftspeople and their work
- sharing their arts discoveries
Arts Award has a flexible framework which mean you can tailor it to a wide range or arts, cultural and heritage activities and you can record you evidence in a variety of ways.
What is Discover at Home?
Created in response to the Coronavirus outbreak, Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England have launched Discover at Home which is an accessible and adaptable version of Arts Award Discover, supporting families to learn about the arts and be creative at home. It’s is aimed at children aged 11 and under and you can even get a certificate!
Discover at Home is a set of free resources which include templates, suggestions of creative activities and easy to follow guidance for parents & carers to support their young people. It’s a great option for parents & carers who may not be arts specialists themselves or are looking for something different to keep children engaged and entertained.
How Do I Get Involved?
If you’re a young person or parent of someone who would like to take part in Discover at Home 20Twenty Productions have been engaged as the Open Centre over the summer. We will be able to advise and moderate the award for any young person looking to get involved. We will also be covering the costs of a limited number of awards on a first come first served basis.
