E17 Art Trail and your creative programme
2010 Schools Information Archive
As well as inviting schools to take part in the E17 Art Trail programme, we prepare materials to help schools identify what could be interesting to visit on the trail. The following downloadable documents were written once the programme for the 2010 trail had been finalised, these could be a useful reference for you. The documents outline ways that your school could have taken part including:
arranging field trips to trail artists,
using the E17 Art Trail as a learning resource and linking it to curriculum objectives,
supporting students to post reviews to the E17 Art Trail blog,
contributing to group shows,
or get the bigger school community involved and invite parents and families to join your school on a tour of trail exhibitions in your local area.
Our thanks to Claire Tansley, a local Assistant Head, and a Friend of Stoneydown Park for sharing her Welcome to Walthamstow Schools Pack for Primary Schools and Childrens Centres.
