ArtsAwardLogoArts Award Discover is an introductory award aimed at 5 to 9 year olds (although any child can take part).

Explore York Libraries and Archives, York Minster, York Museums Trust, 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.

Collect a stamp or sticker at each activity then come to the York Theatre Royal on Saturday 17 September between 10am and 3pm to complete your award by telling us what you did. Remember you need to tell us what you have learnt about an artist too. After talking to you we will apply for an Arts Award certificate for you which will be posted to your home. There is a £3.50 charge payable on the day for certificates.

We are running several events over the summer which can contribute to your arts award, as are our partners at York Minster, York Museums Trust, and York Theatre Royal.
