Arts Award Explore is designed for ages 7 and above. Young people are encouraged to take part in arts activities, learn about the work of artists and art organisations, create a piece of art work and share with others what they have enjoyed and achieved.

Please note: We are currently unable to deliver education sessions on site, but are working on an exciting range of digital and outreach sessions that can be discussed and booked upon enquiry.  

Please contact us to discuss how the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust can support your Arts Awards or to sign up for email updates about our learning offer as it develops.

Arts Award and Shakespeare Week

Shakespeare Week is a national annual celebration giving primary school aged children opportunities for enriching and enjoyable early encounters with Shakespeare. Once you have registered for Shakespeare Week, the free resources can be used as an exciting and engaging way to deliver Arts Award at Discover and Explore level. We have created two downloadable activity mapping resources for you covering these levels. 

Sign up for Shakespeare Week.
