Artsmark

Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools and education settings, awarded by Arts Council England.

We're proud to be supporting schools and education settings on their Artsmark journey, inspiring children and young people to create, experience, and participate in great arts and culture. We offer education settings who are working towards, or currently hold an Artsmark Award, the opportunities below. 

Sculpture Trails

The University of Warwick has a large collection of modern and contemporary art spread across campus that can be used to help you on your Artsmark journey. We have developed a Sculpture Trail to give schools access to the collection.

We have Visitor Assistants, who can create an engaging 2-hour session through observation, discussion and drawing. There is plenty to stimulate young minds, from the carved marble of Dark at Heart by Peter Randall-Page, to the bird-like painted aluminium of Op Mobile no. 10 by Nechemia Azaz.

We also offer an extended visit that includes a hands-on making activity linked to the Sculpture Trail designed by our Creative Learning team and delivered by our Visitor Assistants.

If you have a particular learning outcome in mind for your trip, just let us know and we can help make this happen for you. Sculpture Trails can be booked on days to suit you, so please get in touch to discuss the options.
