Arts Award and Artsmark

The City Classroom and its members are proud advocates of both the Artsmark and Arts Award programmes. The City Classroom complements Artsmark by supporting schools to meet Artsmark criteria and develop their arts and cultural offer by providing opportunities to engage with artists/cultural providers/venues through our termly activities publication, special events and annual CPD programme. We deliver Arts Award Discover at our Summit and can provide advice and signposting in relation to both schemes. We can support schools at any stage in their journey to achieve Artsmark and provide a broader cultural offer in their school. We offer a genuine, long term partnership with schools, children and young people.
