You will need to make at least one visit to each of the four museums: the Ashmolean Museum, the Museum of the History of Science, the Museum of Natural History, and the Pitt Rivers Museum. You will need to complete the logbook pages that refer to each of the museums. The pages contain creative and fun tasks to help you discover artists, art forms and objects at each museum. Parents and carers can help children with any writing required.
In addition to visiting each museum, children need to attend at least one Family Friendly Fun session and record the activity they took part in. There is space to record up to three sessions in the logbook. Family Friendly Fun sessions take place every weekend and during school holidays - almost all of them are free of charge. For more information about family-friendly events visit the webpage.
At the end of the logbook on page 16 there is space for children to share their learning and experiences - this is a key element of Discover Arts Award. Sharing can be done with other family members, friends, in show-and-tell at school or at a club such as Brownies or Wood Craft Folk. Adults can help with any writing required.
In addition to the lovely creative work children do in their logbooks, it is also fantastic to have photographs of children on their museum visits or undertaking creative tasks. We encourage you to take photos whilst completing the log book and to stick them in the logbooks. When the museums are busy, it is handy to bring a camera to take photos of any objects children are interested in so that some of the logbook work can be done at home.
