Arts Award is a framework for children and young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. Children and young people develop creative and critical skills, set themselves challenges and explore the arts, share their achievements and can gain a recognised qualification.
In 2017 RAMM will be piloting Discover Arts Award for families during May half-term, and Explore Arts Award during Theatre Week in August 2017.
About Arts Award
Arts Award has five levels.
Arts Award appeals to a wide range of children and young people. It assesses art form knowledge and understanding, creativity and communication rather than specific art skills – they can be an absolute beginner or experienced in their art form.
Trinity College London manage the scheme in association with Arts Council England. Since its launch in 2015, Arts Award has grown quickly. It now flourishes in arts centres, community projects, libraries, museums, schools, theatres, youth clubs and more.
