Over the last five weeks Sonia Sabri Company and The Old Rep have partnered together to deliver sessions for the children of Birmingham Chinese school to be able to receive a Discover Arts Award. This culminated in a fantastic display for their parents.
When the day finally arrived nerves were in the air, the parents waited with baited breath (the Oscars has nothing on this!) The time to shine was here at last and shine they did! Every one enjoyed seeing the exciting arts activities the children had ben involved in over the past few weeks and the characters and masks they had created.
The Arts Award Discover is an industry award certificate by Trinity College London. Through creative workshops the students find out about artists and their work and can share their arts discovery with others.
Arts award and projects like this are a fantastic way of involving children in the arts and firing a passion!
