Arts Award Supporter Venue

Arts Award is a national qualification that supports young people to develop their potential as artists and leaders, inspiring them to engage with creative activity and the wider creative landscape, all whilst gaining experience and knowledge to support their progression in education and employment.

If you are a school or college in Leicestershire delivering Arts Award, as an Arts Award Supporter Venue we are able to provide free practical support for Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold level, including delivering workshops and activities relating to a particular module. Visits to our exhibitions can be self led or facilitated by our Learning team. For further information and to arrange a visit please contact Abi Morris, info@2queens.com.

Group Visits – Schools and Colleges

Our newly launched programme of Learning and Development activity means we are now able to offer more group visits and workshops for students which are facilitated by our experienced Learning Team. We can also deliver outreach sessions, bringing a workshop to your school or college for classes of up to 35 students.

We use practical activities to explore the themes and disciplines in the exhibitions in a creative and stimulating way. We are open to devising and delivering group visits that are related to your particular area and level of study, as well as supporting cross-curricular learning which develops communication skills, confidence and critical thinking.

This activity is funded by Leicester City Council and Arts Council England, so we are able to offer group visits free of charge, and all materials are provided by us.
