Arts Award Discover

Arts Award, supported by our partners at Hastings Museum and the Arts Council, is a range of unique qualifications that supports young people 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. Doing Arts Award at home works well if you can give a bit of help and guidance and better still if you’re able to join in. To see how easy it is, click here for your Arts Award Discover booklet from the Hastings Museum website.

Five steps to an Award

Through progressing through the five levels, young people get to:

  • discover the enjoyment of creating and participating in arts activities
  • experience arts events
  • develop creative and communication skills that are essential for success in 21st century life
  • explore the work of artists and craftspeople and gain insights into the professional arts world
  • gain experience and knowledge to help progress into further education and employment

There are no entry requirements, no time limit for completing the award, and no set rules on how to present final work.
