Arts Award for Virtual Schools

We’ve created four Arts Award packages for virtual schools. These include one-day sessions through to half-term and term-long programmes, aimed at pupils aged from five to 13.

Why Arts Award?

We love Arts Award here at Blue Cabin, and we’ve been delivering it since we established in 2016.
Arts Award gives children and young people the opportunity to participate in and lead arts and cultural activity – and achieve a nationally-recognised qualification at the same time.
It’s accessible and can be done in such a wide range of ways. It helps develop confidence, communication skills, organisational skills and leadership, alongside arts and creative skills.

How we deliver Arts Award

The Blue Cabin team works in a range of settings to give care-experienced children and young people the opportunity to work with one of our Associate Artists to achieve an Arts Award.
This gives children and young people the chance to work alongside an established professional, experience a range of creative activities and learn about the arts as both a possible career path and as a creative outlet.

Our recent Arts Award projects include:

Our approach

Blue Cabin’s approach is trauma informed. We deliver high-quality arts-based programmes, working collaboratively with our partners. Experience and evidence shows that small groups of children and young people, alongside high levels of staffing and support is a key element of that.

Good quality materials, resources and environment are also important.

These elements bring the best possible experience and outcomes for children and young people.
