Urban Arts

Description

The vision of Urban Arts is to give young people the tools to enable them to make positive life choices throughout their life journey. The Urban Arts project does this by delivering a message of personal safety through lyricism – poetry through music and introducing young people to the arts. Learners will be able to list their own skills and knowledge and will know how lifestyle impacts on learning development. They will be able to plan for and achieve short-term personal development goals. Learners will know own needs and wishes in different contexts, understand assertiveness skills and be able to interact with others. Using the learner’s personal music influences, the project will encourage critical thinking through the exploration of their thoughts, feelings and behaviours, thus encouraging them to build self-confidence. This includes the sharing of knowledge and outlining what the rights and responsibilities are for individuals and others in their lives. As part of the project, learners will have the opportunity to achieve an Entry Level 3 qualification and a Discover Arts Award. The creative outlet will be the experience of creating a lyrical piece of music within a recording studio as well as broadening their talents and experiences within their chosen art form.
