Arts Award Discover

Arts Award Discover Launches Today!

Arts Award Discover starts today in York. Explore York Libraries and Archives, York Museums Trust and York Army Museum are working together to offer children the change to gain Arts Award Discover by taking part in creative activities this summer. In previous years we have held activities in our venues with artists, musicians, theatre companies and more. This year due to Covid-19 we’ve had to adapt and innovate a little.

This year all the information and inspiration you need to take part in Arts Award Discover is available online. Full details are in our Arts Award Discover section. Children should:

take part in at least three of our arts activities, but they can do as many as they like

find out about an artist or craftsperson

share their findings with family or friends

There is a form to fill in and send back to us to claim your certificate, once you have completed the award.

We will be sharing a new suggested arts activity inspired by the museum collections every Monday on this blog. We’ll also be sharing ideas for artists to investigate, and ways to share what you’ve been doing.

Arts Award Discover runs from 18 July to 12 September – we do hope you’ll join in.
