Young WANHS – ARTS Award

ARTS Award – Begin your journey for the explore Arts Award.

Find out about different art forms, explore the Museum collections and the artists and crafts people behind them.
We will begin to record some of the work we have created in our log books and create some new work inspired by our current art exhibition – Alchemy: Artefacts Reimagined.

This session is open to Young WANHS club members and young people 7 or over who are interested in taking part in Arts Award with us.

You do not need to come to any set sessions to carry out your award. You can use work from any sessions you attend at the Museum as well as activities that you carry out in your own time.

For more information about Arts Award or about getting involved contact Ali Rushent, the Museum’s Arts Award Advisor or visit

Young WANHS is our Saturday morning club for 7-14 year olds interested in history, archaeology and natural history. Regular sessions are held throughout the year on the second Saturday of the month, usually at the Museum, from 10.15am – 12.15pm. There’s no annual fee, but pre-booking is essential to help us plan the sessions. Each session costs £5 per child.

New members are always welcome!

For more information, please contact Ali Rushent, our Learning and Outreach Officer
