The Sill – Discover Arts Award at Home

The Sill – Discover Arts Award at Home

Discover Arts Award at Home is a fantastic opportunity to keep children and young people engaged in arts and creativity, as well as forging a connection with nature.

The landscapes of Northumberland provide endless inspiration for all art forms, from wildlife photography to landscape paintings to poetry inspired by the spectacular scenery. The Sill Learning Team can run Arts Award packages in school, but we would also like to encourage young people to take part while at home, being inspired by nature in your own local environment.

If you would like to achieve a Discover Arts Award with the help of The Sill staff, please contact us at Each participant will receive an Arts Log to print at home, which can be submitted for moderation to receive a Discover Arts Award certificate.
