In February half term Hive launched our first Arts Award course for children and young people. Arts Award inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents: it’s creative, valuable and accessible.
Arts Award can be achieved at five levels, four qualifications and an introductory award. The awards are; Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold. The Discover award takes 20 hours to complete and at Hive we specialise in the visual arts.
My daughter said she would most definitely have chosen Hive and Arts Award as the place to be this half term over anywhere else!!
The week was a huge success with all of the participants achieving their Discover award. After a busy time of making and learning about art and artists, each child curated their own small exhibition for an audience. As you will see from the video it was enjoyed by all and has kicked off the Arts award journey for these young artists.
To hear from our participants about their experience and best bits of the half term Discover club you can click here to watch our short film.

The course was extremely well organised with lots of good quality materials and sources of information and inspiration for the children.
The course leader set age appropriate tasks and helped the children develop their sense of curiosity and autonomy, providing them with freedom to express their ideas with well-timed guidance where appropriate. My daughter got a huge amount of please from her creations and has rapidly grown in confidence over the duration of the course.
