About Arts Award at oakwellbarns centre in Wales We are a small independent Arts Centre which receives no funding or grants with studios at Oakwellbarns in Mid-Wales, offering the Nationally recognised Arts Award at Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold levels. We also run music, art and film workshops from our studios. We called ourselves artsawardwales as when we started offering Arts Awards we were the first in Wales to do so and Wales would not show up on the national map, so this was the online way people in Wales could find out about us through searching our name! We specialise in Arts Award for students and groups who are 'outside of the box' whether they are educated outside of school, want to do an Arts Award level that isn't offered within a local group, have special educational needs and anyone else! We are actively inclusive and celebrate diversity. We offer video conferencing mentoring for long distance students, so you can access us from wherever you are in the world.
