I have been working with young people at The Chapel Gallery and The Atkinson to help them get their Arts Award Discovery and Bronze. Arts Award operates on different levels and offers young people the opportunity to develop their interest in and knowledge of the arts. It really is a great award and it is always really inspiring to see how they young people absorb it and make it their own.
