Creating Untitled, the Gallery's creative programme for young people aged 13-18, has taken on a new Arts Award focus in 2015. A scheme managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England, Arts Award's unique qualifications support young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. We offer the opportunity to achieve the Bronze Art Award, which is a Level 1 national qualification.
Creating Untitled: Arts Award returns in September 2015. Keep up to date by liking Pallant House Gallery's Facebook Page, and watch this space for future dates.
To achieve Bronze, a Level 1 national qualification, young people take part in an arts activity they enjoy, go to an arts event, research their arts hero/heroine and share their skills with others. The Bronze Award is available to those aged 11 to 25.
Young people need to plan their work with an adviser, and keep a record by creating their own Arts Award portfolio - this could be a folder, sketchbook, video diary or website. There are no entry requirements or a set time limit for completing the Bronze Awards.
Silver Arts Award, a Level 2 qualification, has two units - Unit 1: arts practice and Unit 2: arts leadership. Doing Silver involves achieving an arts challenge, reviewing arts events, researching artists and arts organisations, and delivering an arts leadership project with other people.
Young people need to plan their work with an adviser and keep a record by creating their own Arts Award portfolio. Young people can pick their own style of portfolio - this could be a diary, video, website blog - or something different altogether. Silver has been designed for young people aged 14 to 25. Again, there are no entry requirements or set time limit for completing the Silver Arts Award.
As well as being an Arts Award centre, Pallant House Gallery is also an Arts Award Supporter. This means we can offer additional arts experiences to young people doing their award through a school, youth group or other organisation.
