Arts Award – Discover in a Day workshop

Arts Council England’s Arts Award scheme

Discover Arts Award is the introductory award open to children and young people aged up to 25.

To achieve Discover Arts Award, children and young people discover the arts around them, find out about artists and their work and share their experiences with others, gaining a certificate at the end.

This award provides a great introduction to the arts and to other Arts Award levels. For information on our education programmes for further levels please explore our previous education projects.

Contact for information.


Artsmark enables organisations to celebrate, strengthen, advocate and evaluate their provision for arts and culture. We can support you to achieve and maintain Artsmark status.

Having Artsmark status not only contributes to the cultural aspect of Ofsted’s requirements but demonstrates the value of arts and culture in your organisation, for your children and young people, and for your community.

Contact for information.

Artsmark is Arts Council England’s nationally recognised flagship programme. For further information, please visit
