Arts Award Discover at Home
Arts Award is a set of awards for children and young people aged 25 and under that gets them involved in and excited about arts and culture and celebrates their creative achievements. This unique qualification is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England.
There are three parts to Arts Award Discover at Home:
Part A: take part in a creative activity and discover different types of ‘art’ around your home
Part B: find out about a creative person
Part C: share what you have achieved and learned
It is free to use our Arts Award Discover resouces thanks to support from The National Lottery Heritage Fund. To receive your certificate, there is a certification fee of £4.25 per person. Large group discounts (25 participants or more) are available.

If you would like to record your work in a logbook, you can download one to print at home here.
It’s time to discover the different ‘art’ around your home. Watch this video to find out more.
Now, it’s time to make some art of your own. Choose an activity from the list below. You only need to complete one activity, but you can do more if you want to! You will need to take a photo of your finished artwork to send us.

Now it's time to complete Part B and find out about a creative person. Watch this video to find out about Lord Alexander Peckover, collector of Ancient Egyptian artefacts.
Lord Alexander Peckover
Now you will need to make a record of what you have found out about Lord Alexander Peckover. You could draw some pictures, make a poster, or perhaps write about him. You need to take a photo of your finished work to send us.
If you would like to know more about the objects mentioned in the film, please download this PDF.
By now you'll have made some fantastic art and found out about Lord Alexander Peckover. Now it’s time to share your work with someone else. Share what you have enjoyed and learnt with at least one other person. You could show your family what you have done, or share with family and friends over video call, email, or perhaps in a letter!
Fill in this short online form (if you are under 18, please ask a parent/guardian to do this for you) to let us know what activities you've been doing and to share two photos of your work with us, one for Part A and one for Part B. Please make sure you only send us photos of your work instead of photos which show your face.
A Google account is required to upload your photos. If you don’t have a Google account, and don’t want to create one, you can complete this alternative form and then email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name (or the child’s name) in your email so that we can match your photos to your completed form.
Once we have received your details, we will look at your form to make sure all the sections are complete. An official Trinity College London Certificate will be sent to you as soon as possible.
