At this one-day course your child will start their arts award journey by discovering some of the art forms that exist in the world. The children will learn that there is more to arts and culture than the art they do at school by touring Storyhouse to discover the designer who illustrated the wallpaper and poems written by poets on the walls, authors and illustrators on the book shelves and architects who designed the building, plus more.

The children will have a go at storytelling and print-making and will complete their own Discover Log Book.

The day will end with a 30-minute sharing event for you to see what your children have discovered and learnt. Your Child will receive a certificate from Trinity College London within 6-8 weeks.


Arts Award is range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form – from fashion to digital art, pottery to poetry.

Arts Award Discover is an introductory award open to children and young people aged up to 25.


This course is for 6-9 year olds.

Children can be supervised by parent/carer or not but parents will be asked to complete an emergency contact form if they choose to leave the child in the care of the Storyhouse staff member.
Please provide a drink and lunch for your child.

This course will be 10am – 3pm, with a presentation for families at 3.30pm in the Storytelling Room
