Arts Award Discover Three Ways


Arts Award Discover is the most popular level of award. In these short films we showcase three very different cultural venues delivering Arts Award Discover in three very different ways to suit their setting, their aims and their audiences.

If you are considering Arts Award Discover or looking to add to your Arts Award offer then these examples will inspire you to get going.






Arts Award Discover in a day at Maidstone Museum with a whole class

A group of Year 6 pupils search for artforms around the museum and then do a workshop inspired by the work and techniques of two artists who made work whilst prisoners of war in Germany during World War II.

Thanks to the Maidstone Museums and to St Marks CE (VC) Primary School.






Arts Award Discover over two days with selected students from six schools at National Coal Mining Museum for England, Wakefield.

Six local Primary schools select Year 6 students with an interest in music for a two day transition project delivered by NCM in partnership with the local Music Hub. They immerse themselves in coal mining heritage and then create and perform.

Thanks to the National Coal Mining Museum for England, Wakefield Music Hub and the six Primary schools.






Arts Award Discover at MK Gallery, Milton Keynes with family groups over three months.

Family groups choose which activities to attend from a selection of Saturday Studio sessions delivered by the Gallery's associate artists over a three month period. The session we filmed was with associate artist Nicole Morris in which the family groups discuss and record public sculpture in Milton Keynes before creating their own sculptures in response.


Thanks to MK Gallery, artist Nicole Morris and all the families who attended her session.
