Arts Award for Schools

Arts Award for Schools

A visit to the Geffrye Museum can support young people working towards a Discover, Explore or Bronze Arts Award.

Arts Award is a range of qualifications which aim to inspire young people aged up to 25 to connect and take part in a range of different art forms. At the Geffrye Museum we use our rich collection and extensive handling collection, including paintings, furniture, decorative arts and textiles, to inspire creativity and provide an opportunity to explore and respond to the arts.


Group visits and booking

The Geffrye supports both facilitated and self-directed Arts Award visits. Booking is essential for both facilitated and self-directed visits. Please contact our bookings coordinator to arrange your visit bookings@geffrye-museum.org.uk
