Discover and Explore


An art club to help children discover, explore and experiment with different materials whilst developing new skills.

Get ready to discover the arts all around you. It’s all about seeing, trying, doing and enjoying new things.

This exciting art club for 8-11 year olds takes place every Thursday (during term-time) and participants have the opportunity to achieve a nationally recognised Arts Award. Similar to the Duke of Edinburgh Award but for the arts, this award is all about taking part in arts activities and experiencing artists and their work.

  • Week 1: Create a piece of art all about yourself
  • Week 2: Create your own animal using collage and print
  • Week 3: Create your own clay invented animal
  • Week 4: Visit to RAMM
  • Week 5: Filming fun
  • Week 6: Time to finish our projects

By coming to Discover & Explore, you can:

Discover the arts all around you, how many different art forms can you find?
Take part in different arts activities, anything from animation to singing.
Meet practising artists and learn all about their work
Be part of a social environment where you can share your arts discoveries with others.

Each participant’s experiences will be collected in a Discover Arts Log, which can be added to during subsequent sessions that they attend. The Arts Award will usually take around 20 hours to complete. This award provides a great introduction to the arts and to other Arts Award levels.
