Arts Award Discover is an introductory award aimed at 5 to 9 year olds (although any child can take part.)

Explore York Libraries and Archives, York Minster, York Museums Trust, York Army Museum and York Theatre Royal are offering children the opportunity to gain Arts Award Discover through taking part in any three creative activities and finding out about artists and crafts people.

Collect a stamp or sticker at each activity then come to the either York Theatre Royal on Saturday 16 September or York Explore Library Sunday 17 September between 1.00pm and 3.00 pm to complete your award by telling us what you did. Remember you need to tell us what you have learnt about an artist too. After talking to you we will apply for an Arts Award certificate for you which will be posted to your home.

Look out for the Arts award logo in Explore’s Summer Reading Challenge event brochure for the sessions that you can use towards your Arts Award Discover.

You will find details of events of York Minster, York Museums Trust, York Army Museum and York Theatre Royal’s events on their own websites.
