What are the benefits?
Arts Award is accredited by Trinity College and is widely recognised and respected by education establishments nationwide, as well as in the workplace.
Arts Award supports the National Curriculum in developing art as a tool for personal achievement, improving analytical skills, and “equipping children with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art”.
