Arts Award for Ivanhoe Students


Arts Award Discover is the introductory Arts award open to children and young people aged up to 25. To achieve Discover students  discover the arts around them, find out about artists and their work and share their experiences with others, gaining a certificate at the end.  This award provides a great introduction to the arts and to other Arts Award levels. 

Our first group of students have now gained the award.  They have been working on the project for 6 weeks after school from 3.30pm-5.30pm.  Each student took part in various art sessions led by ‘Pedestrian’,  a charity organisation who have sent professionals in to work with the students.  Sessions included Music, Glass painting, Art pressing, Design, Jewellery making and more.

Some of the students who have completed Arts Award Discover are returning to the sessions after Easter to act as peer mentors, to the next group to undetake the award. Next year we are hoping to appoint our first Performing Arts Student Ambassadors, and the students who have completed this award will be considered for the role.

If your child received a letter regarding the sessions and is still interested in taking part please return the form as soon as possible. If your child did not receive a letter but would like to get involved please email Mr Cubitt to reserve a place.
