Arts Award Discover 5+

Arts Award Discover is the introductory award open to children and young people aged up to 25.

 

To achieve Discover, children and young people discover the arts around them, find out about artists and their work and share their experiences with others, gaining a certificate at the end. Arts Award Discover will usually take about 20 hours to complete.

 

This award provides a great introduction to the arts and to other Arts Award levels.
