Creative Cafe : exciting developments :)
The Future of the Creative Café: Art Awards
The Creative Café is very excited to announce the latest string to its bow! It has recently put two people, Ali Richards and Millie Chip through an Arts Awards Assessors course. The Creative Café is applying to register as an Arts Awards centre.
As from mid March we hope to run Bronze and Silver Arts Awards sessions for anyone between the ages of 11 to 25.
Shortly after that, sessions for Gold will be launched. (A gold Arts Award is worth UCAS points). There are two other levels for younger people which might be brought in later.
For every intake, we can apply for around £1500 funding, to cover the cost of materials and activities, so cost will be kept low for participants. While working for Arts Awards, young people will have the opportunity to visit museums, galleries, theatres or whatever is relevant to their chosen field, thus expanding their horizons. Some places have already been subscribed to by home educated youngsters.
Arts Award is…
• a great way for children and young people to be inspired by and enjoy the arts
• offered at five levels, four accredited and one introductory award
• a framework for learning new skills and sharing them
• an opportunity to develop creativity and leadership skills
• a link between young people and creative arts professionals
With extra money, we would be able to offer classes or workshops, subsidised for those doing the Art Award, bringing in successful local artists. Imagine sculpting with Elizabeth Hadley!
