Arts Award

Book now

ThinkHigher students are being offered the opportunity to gain a bronze Arts Award qualification in any artform (or a combination of different artforms). Arts Awards are also available in silver and gold (gold attracts UCAS tariff points).

Arts Award Bronze is split in to four areas: Taking part in something new; be an audience member; research who inspires you in the arts and share your arts skill with others. We may consider the broad theme of identity and heritage.

Artforms include, but are not limited to: literature, performing arts, visual arts, dance, drama, music, poetry, spoken work, graffiti, breakin, MCing, DJing, painting, drawing, pottery, digital arts, multimedia, photography, fashion, textiles and many more. 

Tuesday 23rd - Thursday 25th July - CREATIVE CAMPS 

The main Arts Award project will take place during the school summer holiday on Tuesday 23rd, Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th July, followed by a showcase at a later date (date tbc). You MUST be available for these creative camps during the summer holidays. They are NOT residentials; you will return home each evening and just attend each day. You will also complete some independent work towards your Arts Award portfolio in your own time.

Attendance on Wednesday 17th April, Tuesday 23rd July, Wednesday 24th July and Thursday 25th July, plus a showcase at a later date (tbc) are essential.

All food and transport and catering is provided. Wear something comfortable, appropriate to the activities and suitable for the weather conditions. The intro, the trip and the creative camps are all free.
