  • Free drawing and painting

All events 10am to 3.30pm

Arts Award Discover 
If you are aged 6 to 14 you can complete your Arts Award Discover qualification during the summer. 
Get Creative Arts Award Discover packs can be purchased from the reception at The Collection Museum or Museum of Lincolnshire Life from Monday 25th July until Friday 26th August. You do not need to do your full award on site with us but may want our help so please pop in on any Get Creative day to find out more and we can help with ideas. You might have a preferred theme form our event days – see below. You would then need to bring in evidence of your creative arts practice in your chosen art form (e.g. a painting, a song, a dance, a story etc) and have completed the Get Creative Arts Award Discover pack by the end of August. The learning team will liaise with you for your contact details as we will send off for your certificates to Trinity and let you know when they arrive with us to be collected at your convenience.  For each event day there is a slightly different theme for the craft activities based upon different aspects of the exhibitions to ensure that you have lots of options across the summer!
