Discover & Explore Arts Award at the Museum

We think our Museum is fantastic place to develop your pupils’ creative talents and is a perfect starting point for an Arts Award project.

To help you we have created a Pupil Log Book and Teacher Resource, which leads pupils on a creative journey around the Museum where they complete a variety of arts activities, including drawing, creative writing and role play. Many of our workshops also support Arts Award.

There are also suggested activities and ideas to use back in the classroom too, which once completed, will provide the evidence required for your pupils to achieve Arts Award Discover.
