Arts Award inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents: it's creative, valuable and accessible.

Arts Award can be achieved at five levels, four qualifications and an introductory award: Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold.


Arts Award 'Discover' aims to encourage learners to develop a basic understanding of a range of art forms, to commit to taking part in arts activities, and to develop a basic understanding of communication. Learners do this through identifying that a range of art forms make up the arts, taking part in different arts activities, finding out about artists and their work and sharing their arts discoveries with others. They create a personal arts log (portfolio) to record their experiences in a format of their choice. Arts Award 'Discover' provides a foundation to enable learners to be introduced to the arts and is a springboard to other levels of Arts Award.
