The Arty Amber Art Awards
Firstly, congratulations on your commitment to your child’s art education. Art Award is a wonderful achievement for young people and the best thing about it is that its non-competitive. Art Award is for 7-10 year olds and 11-15 year olds who want to take art that extra step further and be challenged. It helps young people to grow artistically whilst gaining awards for their progress. Spaces are strictly limited!
