Discover Arts Awards

Complete an Arts Award at RAMM with your family, school, youth group or after school club.

Arts Award Discover is a certificate and introductory award for children and young people. It is also a creative and fun way to find out about RAMM and the many different things the museum has in it.

You can achieve your Discover Arts Award at RAMM any day of the week.

For 6 – 10 year olds, follow Alfie the Sparrow as a guide around the museum at your own pace to complete arty activities and challenges in the galleries. Children can start their creative journey by purchasing and reading the complementary storybook “Aflie’s Night Out” from the RAMM Shop, which introduces the character of Alfie the sparrow as he explores the museum at night when it magically comes to life.

For 11 – 25 year olds, an activity booklet with funky illustrations by local artist Molly Saunders is now also available. Arty challenges include sketching games, writing and poem and researching an artist of your choice to achieve their certificate and award.

RAMM has some fantastic art exhibitions on display each year that perfectly complement young people’s Arts Award challenges. Click here for information on the latest exhibitions at RAMM.

More about Arts Award at RAMM

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.  Arts Award can be achieved at five levels, four accredited qualifications and the Discover level which is an introductory award.

RAMM is an Arts Award supporter and an Arts Award centre.

You can achieve your Discover Arts Award at RAMM all in one day, or add to it over several visits. We recommend a minimum of 2 hours in the museum to run through the basic tasks. You might want to take the booklets away with your group to finish off elsewhere if time is short.

Both booklets are available from the RAMM Shop and cost £5, or £3.50 per child for groups of 12 children or more. This price includes the booklet, an instruction sheet, your Arts Award certificate and, for the younger ones, an Alfie the Sparrow badge as a prize for finishing.

You will need to complete all the sections in the activity booklet to achieve your award. When you have finished, hand it over to a museum staff member in the RAMM Shop. The Engagement and Learning team will then mark it before applying to Trinity College London for your Discover Arts Award Certificate. Moderation takes place at set times each year in March, June, September and December.

Certificates then take 6-8 weeks to arrive and will be posted to the address you write at the back of your booklet.

We hope you enjoy discovering RAMM in new and creative ways!
