Arts Award

Arts Award Explore is an Entry Level (Entry 3) qualification on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and is designed for ages 7 and above.


To achieve an Arts Award Explore, children and young people collect evidence in an individual arts log of their experiences of:

  • active participation in a range of arts activities, including a personal response about what they have learnt from taking part
  • experience of arts organisations, artists and their work
  • creating a piece of art work
  • identification of what they have enjoyed and/or achieved, and their communication of this to others ​


In Fens Primary, children from Year 5 are given an opportunity to participate in Arts Award. The children have had experience in creative writing, water colours, dancing, singing, photography and sewing. The children then looked at the artist Kandinsky and created art work based on feelings and emotions. We visited Hartlepool Art Gallery and took part in portraiture art. The children then created their own piece of art work and presented this at home or in school.
