Leicester Print Workshop is proud to support Arts Award, inspiring young people to grow their arts and leadership talents.

What is Arts Award?

Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that support young people, enabling them to connect and take part in the wider arts world. We are registered to deliver Arts Award Discover and Arts Award Explore here at LPW.

Arts Award Discover is an introductory award designed for ages 5 and above. Arts Award Explore is an Entry Level (Entry 3) qualification on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and is designed for ages 7 and above.

Inspired by our exhibitions programme, children will have the opportunity to achieve an Arts Award Discover, and:

  • Meet an Artist
  • Discover or Explore Printmaking
  • Create their own prints
  • Reflect on their day with family at a mini exhibition at the end of the day

Suitable for children aged 5 - 7 years.
