Come along to hear from See Think Make and Historic Environment Scotland about their recent heritage focused Arts Award project in Stirling, and how you could use the qualifications in your own projects with Children and Young People.
This session is both for trained Arts Award Advisers and those interested in potentially becoming an adviser who work Children and Young People. No previous arts or heritage experience necessary – just an interest. We will cover how to become an Arts Award Centre and get support to get started.
Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications, accredited by Trinity College London that supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form – from fashion to digital art, pottery to poetry.
Offered at five different levels, young people get to:
• discover the enjoyment of creating and participating in any art form
• develop their creativity and leadership skills
• learn new skills and share them with others
• get to work with or experience working with creative arts professionals
• gain experience and knowledge to progress into further education and employment
To achieve their Arts Award, young people take on challenges in an art form, participate in arts activities, experience arts events, get inspired by artists and share their arts skills with others. Young people create a portfolio to keep a record of their creative journey. Along the way they are supported by an Arts Award adviser, acting as assessor, facilitator and mentor.
Discover is an introductory award, available from any age up to 25. Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold are accredited. Explore is also for any age up to 25 and Bronze, Silver and Gold are for 11-25.
