New offer – Arts Award for schools & groups
10 January 2019
RAMM is now offering Arts Award Discover for schools, youth groups or after school clubs. The activity booklet, which is also available to families from Garden Reception or the Shop at RAMM, is suitable for Year Groups 2 – 6 (6 – 11 year olds).
What is Arts Award?
Arts Award is a framework for children and young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. Children and young people can cultivate creative and critical skills, set themselves challenges and explore the arts, share their achievements and can gain a recognised qualification.
Arts Award Discover is also a creative and fun way to find out about RAMM and its fascinating collections.
How does it work?
Groups can follow Alfie the Sparrow around the museum at their own pace to complete arty activities and challenges in the galleries. They can book a time to visit the museum by contacting coordinators Maya or Neil, and can complete the award all in one day (minimum 2 hrs) or over several visits. Schools or groups are also free to take the booklets away with them to finish off elsewhere if time is short.
Once all the sections in the booklet have been completed, groups then return their booklets to a museum staff member at Garden Reception or in the Shop at RAMM. Each child will then receive an Alfie the Sparrow badge as a reward.
Finally, RAMM will moderate all booklets and apply to Trinity College London for certificates, which will be posted to a single address provided by the group, along with the completed Arts Award booklets for the children to keep.
How much does it cost?
RAMM is offering Arts Award Discover for schools and groups at a special introductory price of £3.50 per child for groups of 12+ (normal price £5). Price includes the activity booklet, an instruction sheet, the Award certificate and an Alfie the Sparrow badge.
For more information and to book your school or group, contact Maya Herbolzheimer, Engagement Officer, on 01392 265965 or [email protected].
