Arts Award Discover
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.
This award provides a great introduction to the arts and to other Arts Award levels.
‘Arts Award Discover is an amazing opportunity for the children to take part in. It’s really easy to organise the project using a topic from our creative curriculum. The children thoroughly enjoy the activities and working in the Arts Award log books - another special touch - which gives the Arts Award framework the high profile that it deserves.’ Sheron Bentley, Teacher, Victoria Park Primary in Smethwick
Arts Award Discover is also open to Key Stage 1
If you would like to deliver Discover, you will need to book onto an Arts Award Discover & Explore adviser training course.
