ARTS AWARD

The Corn Hall offers a number of projects throughout the year that give young people the opportunity to achieve an Arts Award. Come and join us and get inspired…

Arts Awards offer a range of unique qualifications 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. 

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. The awards give children and young people the chance to discover the enjoyment of creating and participating in any art form, develop their creativity and their leadership skills. The programme offers opportunities for children and young people to meet and work with professional artists and practitioners and gain experience and knowledge to progress into further education and employment.
