What is Discover at Home?

Discover at Home is a special on-line version of Arts Award Discover, the first level of Arts Award.

It is aimed at children aged 11 and under (or anyone under 25 with additional needs). Arts Award Discover at Home is a fantastic way for children to be rewarded for the creative activities they enjoy.

The activities on offer include Puppet Making with Tessa Bide (all you need is newspaper and masking tape!), Match box book making with Claire Barker (the clues in the name), recycled sculpture with Darrell Wakelam and many more.

Encouraging children to:

Take part in arts activities... find out more about an artist or arts organisation... share their arts discoveries

It’s a great option for parents & carers who may be looking for something different to keep children engaged and entertained.
