Arts Award

UK Young Artists is delighted to be a registered Arts Award Supporter and can offer a range of opportunities for young people who are completing their Arts Award at all levels.

Our Arts Award Supporter offer would best suit those working towards, Discover, Explore, Bronze and Silver Arts Awards. However we would be happy to discuss Gold Arts Award opportunities with groups or individuals who may be interested in a more in-depth involvement with UK Young Artists.

If you'd like to discuss any of the opportunities listed below please contact Laura Evans, UK Young Artists Marketing and Communications Manager via email on

Want to do your Arts Award?

Although we support Arts Award and run a range of linked activities, currently we cannot help you through the process of doing your Arts Award. You will need to contact a local Arts Award centre. You can find these on the Arts Award Centre Map.
