Arts Award

Jacksons Lane is an Arts Award Centre and an Arts Award Supporter

Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form.

To achieve their Arts Award, young people take on challenges in an art form, participate in arts activities, experience arts events, get inspired by artists and share their arts skills with others. Young people create a portfolio to keep a record of their creative journey. Along the way they are supported by an Arts Award adviser, acting as assessor, facilitator and mentor.

Jacksons Lane is proud to be not only an Arts Award Centre able to deliver everything from Discover to Gold but we are also an Arts Award Supporter. This means that any young person studying Bronze Arts Award or Silver Arts Award will be able to complete part of their course through activities offered at Jacksons Lane.
