Each week we did a different activity, some of the activities lasted a couple of weeks and the young people ended up with a whole range of new skills from drawing to animation. The classes lasted two hours each session apart from the 10 minute biscuit break at 5pm. 22 young people started the course and 17 went on to get their Arts Award Discover. Overall everyone had a great time although the Corn Hall had many a stressful week about the state of their carpet! (No lasting damage was made).

The final week saw lots of cake consumed and also parents were invited to come along and see the finished animations. 17 young people were presented with their Arts Award certificates.


The project was supported by Awards for All.
