Achieve an Arts Award in Polka’s Youth Theatre next year in 2024!
Join us in the upcoming Spring & Summer Terms to gain your Explore Arts Award while taking part in your weekly drama club.
Polka are offering all children in Youth Theatre to join us on an Arts Award adventure!
For those wanting to take the award, no extra time or resource will be needed. Everything will be included during their usual Youth Theatre club where they will enjoy discovering a wide range of arts from theatre skills, movement and more.
Those children taking part in Youth Theatre can sign up to participate in the Explore Arts Award, recording what they explore on their creative journey with us in their Polka Arts Award Log. Here they will write, record and document their own unique and exciting explorations into the many different forms of art learnt through theatre, as well as creating their own performative artwork and sharing their artistic achievements in front of family and friends. Their creative work will be checked throughout the Spring and Summer terms and marked at the end by our accredited Arts Award adviser.
Our team of professional theatre facilitators and our Arts Award adviser will guide the children on an exciting Arts Award journey with us, where they will all receive their very own certificate on completion of the course. Participants do not need to have taken part in the Arts Award scheme before and can join at the level of Explore in Youth Theatre.
This additional opportunity will only cost an extra £8 per child per term and takes place over Spring & Summer Terms only!
What the Arts Award website says...
Arts Award Explore encourages children and young people to experience different art forms and artists and develop their own creativity. Along the way they record what they've achieved and enjoyed and share it with others. As they work through Arts Award Explore, young people build their artistic knowledge, creativity and confidence – and gain a recognised qualification in the process. They research a range of genres, creators and arts organisations, and make full use of their imagination and communication skills.
For those who are interested in joining, please email Polka’s Participation Manager and accredited Arts Award adviser, Heidi on [email protected] by Wednesday 3 January 2024 or call on 020 8545 8349.
