Arts Pioneers is a monthly art club based at the Fitzwilliam Museum for young people aged 11-19 of mixed abilities. We offer a friendly, supportive and flexible environment to enable young people to work with professional artists and develop their art skills and express their creativity. Assisted by support workers and museum educators, the group explore the over half a million art works and objects, participating in lots of different fun art activities.
Members of the group work towards an Arts Award, a nationally recognised qualification that supports young people to develop their creative practice and leadership skills. More information about Arts Award.
