The Arts Award is a nationally recognised qualification from Trinity College London for young people aged five to 25.
Thanks for funding and support from Cape UK, young people in North Lincolnshire can now work towards their Explore Arts Award.
The Arts Award is split into four sections for young people to complete. They will:
- Take part in different art activities such as drawing, music, drama, and record what inspires them
- Find out about arts organisations and the artists whose work they will find there
- Create their own creative work to demonstrate their arts skills and creativity
- Present and share what they have done on their North Lincolnshire Arts Award journey
While they work towards the Arts Award, participants will record their progress in the Explore North Lincolnshire workbook. The workbook features illustrations of local arts venues including North Lincolnshire Museum, 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, The Baths Hall and The Plowright Theatre.
The Explore Arts Award costs just £12, which includes your workbook, support through the award and a certificate upon completion.
To join the Arts Award, you can pick up a registration form and your workbook form 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, Church Square, Scunthorpe.
Cllr Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for Health and Wellbeing at North Lincolnshire Council, said:
The Arts Award helps to develop young people’s creativity, communication and leadership skills. We’re excited to be able to launch the Explore Arts Award across our venues in North Lincolnshire and hope to get young people enthused and inspired by the arts.
Regular support sessions will take place to offer guidance to those working towards their Explore Arts Award. The first session will take place on Wednesday 26 October from 10am to 12noon at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre.
