Artsmark awards

Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools and education settings, awarded by Arts Council England, recognising their commitment to high quality arts and cultural education.

At Tinkamel, we have a long experience of delivering cross-curricular projects that combine traditional arts with sciences & new technologies.

We offer age/ ability appropriate structured activities that incorporate open­-ended, self directed exploration.


Our sessions are tailored to students' needs and we use our expertise to accompany students on their artistic and technical journey.

Our projects are available for KS1 - KS4 students.

We can support students with different art forms, combined and visual arts, ranging from sculpture, textile art, 2D picture making to 3D or CAD design, or music creation.

Projects are cross-curricular and link to many aspects of the Curriculum in Art, Sciences, Design and Technology. They allow self guided creative exploration  to spark critical thinking, imagination and resilience.

We also offer sessions tailored to students with Special Educational Needs.

We offer education settings who are working towards, or currently hold an Artsmark Award, with the following opportunities:

Tinkamel is 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.
