Schools are you ready to start your Artsmark Journey?
Artsmark: inspiring young people through great art and culture
Curious Minds and The Wirral Museums Service are working together to celebrate the creative opportunities that schools in the Wirral are offering their young people. We want to ensure schools feel confident that their cultural offer is up to date and that they are aware of the opportunities available to them.
Every child should have the opportunity to create, compose, and perform, as well as to visit, experience, participate in and review extraordinary work.
Artsmark can help unlock the potential of children and young people, help to develop character and talent, and increase their knowledge. Awarded by Arts Council England, designed by schools, the new Artsmark award will help schools to deliver a high quality arts and cultural education, across the country. Artsmark is rewarding more and more schools for championing arts and culture.
The new Artsmark process is completely different from previous years; schools no longer need a minimum percentage of curriculum time or fulfil strict criteria. Rather than retrospectively celebrating what you have done the new process is forward looking to where you school wants to be linked to your school Improvement Plan , Artsmark currently has 4 levels, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
