Digital Arts Award

QUAD will be delivering Arts Award Bronze Level for 11-18-year olds, working to transform physical artwork into digital – culminating in an exhibition of the works created.

Please note: This course is now fully booked. If you would like to be added to the bursary reserves list, please apply as usual to be added to our waiting list in the event that someone can no longer attend.

Sessions will take place over ten weeks - every Saturday morning for 2.5hrs - beginning early January 2020.  Young people will have opportunity to learn graphic design skills, ceramics, AR and VR Technology, photography, film, digital game design and animation to name a few!

Arts Award’s unique qualifications support children and young people to grow as artists inspiring them to take part in the wider arts world. 

Through Arts Award young people gain a nationally recognised qualification accredited by Trinity College London, which can help them to progress into further education and employment. They not only gain art form knowledge and understanding, but also develop leadership, creativity and communication skills.

Arts Award can be achieved at five levels and the highest - Gold Level - carries valuable UCAS points. 
Beginning with Bronze Level, further levels will be delivered at QUAD throughout the year.
