Arts Award's unique qualifications support young people to develop creativity, leadership & communication skills.
This Spring, a group of children from Years 3, 4 & 5 have been working hard with Miss Russell to achieve their Arts Award Discover certificates.
First they explored the arts, including music, dance, photography, architecture & poetry, before researching an artist who influences them & sharing their posters with each other. They also enjoyed some exciting opportunities, including taking part in the Coventry & Warwickshire Dance Festival at the Albany Theatre, meeting Strictly star Giovanni Pernice & watching the open final rehearsal of his show 'Il Ballo E Vita' ('Dance Is Life') at the Albany Theatre, and composing a piece of experimental music in honour of Delia Derbyshire's 80th birthday at the Coventry Music Museum.
This piece of music, called 'PsycheDelia', led to another opportunity, when we were invited to join the local radio celebrations as they unveiled a blue plaque on Delia Derbyshire's home as part of the BBC Music Day celebrations on 15th June. We even got to meet Dr. Who legend Colin Baker!
