Spend the week learning more about the arts industry, artists and art practises with a professional artist and receive the Explore Arts Award qualification. All your family are then invoited to a private view of an exhibition of your work on Saturday 20th August, 4pm to 6pm at the studio.

Arts Award Explore is an Entry Level (Entry 3) qualification on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and is designed for ages 7 and above, but is open to children and young people aged 25 and under.

To achieve an Arts Award Explore, children and young people collect evidence in an individual arts log of their experiences of:

  • active partication in a range of arts activities, including a personal response about what they have learnt from taking part
  • experience of arts organisations, artists and their work
  • creating a piece of art work
  • identification of what they have enjoyed and/or achieved, and their communication of this to others 

Please bring lunch with you to enjoy in the studio or you can take a walk down the High Street where there are a couple of cafes to choose from if you’re old enough to go on your own.

If you feel your child would benefit from one of our workshops but can’t afford it, please contact us. We have a pay it forward scheme and would hate for anyone to miss out on the benefit of creativity because of financial issues. Equally if you are able to pay it forward for someone else to benefit from our workshops, please get in touch.
