Trinity College London has developed ‘ Discover at Home’ which will be available throughout the current period. This is a resource pack and can be downloaded below. It is a fantastic way to keep children engaged in the arts and encourages creativity. ‘Discover at home’ is a great option for parents and carers who may not be art specialists themselves or are looking for something different to keep children engaged and entertained without the need for assessment. ‘Discover at Home’ enables children to be rewarded for the creative activities they enjoy and supports them to connect with their local museums, theatres and arts activities they like, online or at home or until it is possible to visit these cultural centres once again. It is an opportunity to also explore and learn about artists and new art activities. Arts Award Discover can also be completed in more normal times, usually in partnership with a school or a local arts organisation. Cherry Grove school is a registered Arts Award Centre and ordinarily runs Arts Award Discover as an afterschool club. If you would like to gain the Trinity College Arts Award Discover certificate through Arts Award ‘Discover at Home’ you will need to register with a registered Arts Award centre.
