Arts Award Discover 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
