Artists books: Arts Award

Arts Award
Selwyn and Park Primary schools


Books and zines


Children from Park and Selwyn Primaries came together for an after school club project to explore book- making. The project offered the children an opportunity to achieve  Arts Award Explore. Arts Award is a scheme which enables children and young people to explore and develop their skills across the arts. On completion they receive an accredited award and certificate. The children explored simple book-making techniques including zines, pop-up books and sculptural books, and looked at artists who make book art. They used their newly learnt skills to produce their own sculptural book which they presented to their parents and friends in an exhibition. They extended their knowledge of the arts world by finding out about the work that Bow Arts Trust does as artist studio providers, gallery and education programmes.

The Project was co-ordinated by Bow Arts.
