How to make your own geranium (free to download)

Charles Dickens was a very famous writer who lived and worked in Medway in the 1800s. Many of his stories were inspired by local people and places that he saw. His books are still loved and read today.

To pay tribute to this remarkable writer we want to decorate Medway with his favourite flower - the red geranium. Unlike a typical geranium, this flower will be made from paper - a fitting tribute to his paper writing career.

Arts Award - Discover at Home

Discover at Home is a resource pack. If you would like to apply for a Discover certificate you will need to complete the activities with a registered Arts Award centre. But families are welcome to use this resource pack to structure creative activities at home, without the need to achieve a certificate.

Discover at Home is a special version of Arts Award Discover, the first level of Arts Award. Arts Award is a set of awards for children and young people aged 25 and under that gets them involved in and excited about arts and culture and celebrates their creative achievements. This unique qualification is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England. It is normally available across the UK through schools and centres that offer arts activities.
