Through Arts Award, children and young people can take an inspiring arts journey that earns them a qualiﬁcation for something they enjoy doing, lets them experience the professional arts world and share their passion with friends.
Each path can take a different direction – from drawing, to photography, from painting to crochet, young people take on challenges in an art form they enjoy.
Why Arts Award?
Arts Award supports young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. Four qualiﬁcations are on offer along with an introductory level. The ﬁve levels are Arts Award Discover and Arts Award Explore, which are designed for ages 5 plus, and Bronze, Silver and Gold Arts Award for ages 11 to 25.
At all levels, Arts Award:
develops creativity, leadership and communication skills and builds self-confidence
takes a ﬂexible portfolio-based approach and assesses personal creative development
helps young people prepare for further education and employment by teaching them to work independently
Who is the Arts award for?
Anyone aged 25 and under can work towards an award in any area of the arts. Young people can start at any Arts Award level, or working through all ﬁve (which is recommended)
As they work towards Arts Award, young people create an arts log or portfolio by collecting evidence of what they have done and reﬂecting on their experiences. Young people work towards their award at Pictura studios, where they will learn new skills, make new friends as well as working independently at home. Trained Arts Award advisers at pictura studios will support young people to achieve their goals and assess their progress via their portfolio. A trained moderator then validates this assessment.
Young people who achieve the award receive a certificate from Trinity College London. There are also 16 UCAS points attached to the highest level
