Arts Award Club

Support your child's artistic development

Inspire your child’s creativity.

Arts Award is a series of nationally recognised qualifications that supports your child’s artistic development. Through taking on artistic challenges, ranging from digital art to pottery, children and young people can develop their skills and be inspired to create their own art.

Arts Award is an approved activity provider for The Duke of Edinburgh Award. It is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England.

Pallant Arts Award Club is a series of six monthly workshops that will guide children through their Arts Award qualification in either Discover, Explore or Bronze levels – read on to find out more about each qualification.
