Arts Award

Arts Award is a range of recognised qualifications awarded by Trinity College London which support children and young people to grow as artists and arts leaders. Read on for details about Arts Award opportunities at Skipton Town Hall.

Exploring Craven Museum

Age 5-9

Arts Award Discover

Arts Award Discover is the introductory level for Arts Award aimed at young people aged 5 to 9, but open to anyone between the ages of 5 and 25. In this award, participants take part in arts activities and identify different types of art, find out about an artist or craftsperson and share what they have learned and experienced.

Skipton Town Hall now offers a self-led Arts Award Discover which you can complete while exploring Craven Museum! Visit us any time the museum is open, purchase a booklet and borrow an Arts Award Discover bag to complete the award. We recommend at least an hour to finish the full booklet.

Please note, young children will require adult supervision and support whilst taking part.

Successful participants will receive a certificate from Trinity College London through the post.


Making clay pots

Age 11-14

Bronze Arts Award

Bronze is a Level 1 qualification aimed at young people aged 11 to 14, but open to anyone between the ages of 11 and 25. In this award, participants take part in arts activities, experience arts events, research an artist or craftsperson and share their arts skills with others.

Skipton Town Hall delivers set Bronze Arts Award programmes at different points in the calendar, usually once a year. Some programmes are run for particular community groups and others are open to anyone. Read about our last Bronze Arts Award project on our news page. Arts Award News
