Arts Award Discover 2016
Arts Award Discover is an introductory award aimed at 5 to 9 year olds (although any child can take part).
York Museums Trust, Explore York Libraries and Archives, York Minster and York Theatre Royal are offering children the opportunity to gain Arts Award Discover through taking part in any three creative activities and finding out about artists and crafts people.
Activities will take place at York Art Gallery, the Yorkshire Museum and York Castle Museum between July and August 2016 – please click here for details of what’s on when and where.
Collect a stamp or sticker at each activity then visit the York Theatre Royal on Saturday 17 September 2016 between 10.00 am and 3.00 pm to complete your award and to share what you learnt (remember, you need to say what you discovered about an artist too!)
Afterwards, we will apply for your Arts Award certificate, which will be posted to your home. There is a £3.50 charge payable on the day for certificates.
