What is the Arts Award?

Arts Award inspires young people to develop their arts and leadership talents. It’s creative, valuable and accessible.

It can be completed at five levels, four qualifications and an introductory award.

Whatever art form you’re interested in, whatever your ability, Arts Award fits you.
