Learn some new art skills…dance, music, poetry, fashion, digital. Whatever you're into, just have a go.

PART B: Explore the arts as an audience member and share your views of what you thought. You could go to an art exhibition, a theatre show, a music gig or a film, your choice!

PART C: Arts inspiration is your chance to research an artist who inspires you and find out about them and their artwork.

PART D: Share your arts skills with your friends or family.

Create an Arts Award portfolio to record your work and your progress. This could be a sketchbook, film, Powerpoint or website. Check out these digital portfolios for ideas
