Arts Awards are a great opportunity for children and young people to learn more about the arts and artists, and to try out different artforms. Arts Awards are moderated by Trinity College London. The Learning Team are trained to assess the Discover Arts Award and once the day is complete they will send off for your official Discover Arts Award Certificate from Trinity (please note this can take 6-8 weeks to arrive). Once received they will contact you to either collect or have it posted to you.
