Arts Award logo
Want to get creative as a family but don’t know where to start?
Need a hand keeping the kids busy, creative and inspired?
Maybe you’re looking for a project to complete over the Summer holidays?
Our Arts Award home-based opportunities may be the solution!
Available at both Discover and Explore levels, Shropshire Libraries’ Arts Award has moved online. Arts Award is a set of qualifications for children and young people that gets them involved in, and excited about, the arts and culture. On completion, children will be awarded a certificate from Trinity College London, who manage Arts Award, in association with Arts Council England. Find out more about Arts Award here
The Discover level qualification is designed for children ages 5-9 and Explore level for ages 7-11, although any young person up to the age of 25 can take part. Participants will create an online portfolio through a secure web platform to complete their qualification. Further details about requirements and costings for each level can be found here.
To support the Arts Award qualification, Shropshire Libraries Arts Award team have put together a resource pack highlighting relevant e-books, e-magazines and arts and cultural websites. The pack includes links to local arts and cultural organisations such as Shropshire Museums, who have created a selection of short videos and worksheets featuring objects and artworks held in their collection.
Sounds good? Contact us at to register or ask us any questions.
As our buildings begin their phased re-opening, don’t forget there’s still lots on offer online too. Click here to view the full range of Libraries From Home services.

18th of every month - The LAS Social. Blue Boar, Ludlow, 8pm

CANCELLED for this month.

Watch this space for updates on the next LAS Socials and exhibitions, and all LAS activities.


IF IT HAD BEEN GOING AHEAD, it would have looked like this.....

"All welcome to the monthly LAS Socials, from 8pm at the Blue Boar in Ludlow. 

Even if you are not a member of the Art Society, come along and meet local and regional artists. If you are a member and have not been to a social before, bring someone along if you like.

The Socials are on Facebook as Events, 18th of each month, so you can click "Interested" or "Going" and you will get a reminder when it's near, or you can check your FB calendar.  And share it with arts friends.

We gather on the 18th of every month. Typically about 10-20 of us. We talk about our projects, and anything. It's just a friendly gathering in a warm pub, with arts interests.
We plan exhibitions, share ideas and techniques, get advice, share stories, and laugh a lot. It's the Social of the Ludlow Arts Society.

Best turn up any time before 10pm.
Members, come and share what's going on, and find out more about the LAS events and aims and plans.
Non-members too.

Happy art-making and thinking, everyone.
