Following my recent 3-day visit to Farnham Primary School in Bradford. I had the privilige of working alongside some wonderful, inspiring teachers, not to mention, some very talented pupils. Thanks to the head teacher and deputy heads, children in this school receive a well rounded, balanced education where creativity is encouraged amongst all ages.
My role as artist in residence and Arts Award adviser means I’m able to support children and young people working towards their awards, acting as mentor, facilitator and primary assessor.
Centres can be set up in a wide variety of different places, from arts organisations to schools, pupil referral units, youth clubs and community centres, including any setting that supports children and young people taking part in the arts.
Becoming an Arts Award centre is a great way to…
- Enable young people to work towards a national qualification and accredit their work
- Kick-start a new arts project
- Develop your existing work with young people through the Arts Award framework
- Engage more young people in the arts and challenge them to develop their creativity and leadership skills
