If you are really keen on any of the arts, from dance to drawing to digital media (or even scrap art!) then you might be interested in doing an Arts Award.
Any young person up to the age of 25 can achieve an Arts Award through any arts, media or cultural activity. All you need to do is register with an Arts Award Adviser (small fee involved) who will guide you through the Award, and then you can get going!
Here at Scrappies we can guide young people who are working independently towards their Discover and Explore Awards (ages 7-11, Jancis Vaughan) or their Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards (ages 11- 25, Lesley McKnight). For more information please get in touch.

Arts Award supports young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. Young people aged up to 25 of all abilities and interests can gain an Arts Award through any arts, media or cultural activity.
Arts Award can be achieved at five levels, four qualifications and an introductory level. The award assesses art form knowledge and understanding, creativity and communication skills and helps to prepare young people for further education and employment.
