Arts Award Relaunch and Registration


Arts Award Discover / 5+ year olds / £15 

Arts Award Explore / 7+ year olds / £20 

Arts Award is a fantastic national scheme to help young people and children to feel inspired by and enjoy the arts accredited by Trinity College London. Here at MK Gallery we are changing the way we offer Arts Awards!  From January we will be delivering Arts Awards in quarterly seasons ensuring that each child can complete their award within a three month period.  

Taking part is simple; attend your choice of our weekly family Saturday Studio workshops and regular holiday sessions led by one of our Associate Artists for a wealth of opportunities to try out varied art forms, explore new materials and test different creative approaches to record in your logbook. Attend your three Arts Award sharing sessions led by your Arts Award Adviser to explore your ideas and share your progression through the Arts Award journey, develop your logbooks in playful and creative ways and work closely with your fellow Arts Awards participants.



Sign up to our spring Arts Award group


We are currently inviting children to sign up for our spring Arts Award group which will begin in April and end in June. We also welcome children who have already begun but not completed their Arts Awards journey previously with us.

Key dates for the spring Arts Award group (attendance required):

Sat 1 April / 12-1pm / Introduction to Arts Awards at MK Gallery

Sat 6 May / 12-1pm / Midway sharing session

Sat 3 June / 12-1pm / Conclusion and celebratory session 



As part of your MK Gallery Arts Awards package you will receive your Arts Award logbook and three free Saturday Studio workshops (normally £1 per person) which can be attended at any point during your three month Arts Award journey by informing the artist leading the session. Parents are not required to attend the Arts Award Sharing Session however our Saturday Studio and Holiday workshops are for the whole family (children 5+ and 7+).

If you wish to work towards your Discover or Explore Arts Award at MK Gallery in our winter Arts Award group please register your interest by emailing for 5 year olds and for ages 6+.
