''The infinite embrace'', ''Breaking Bard'', ''Down the rabbit hole'', "Time to fly", " Women of the world art quilt" just to quote few intriguing titles...


Artists have been inspired by classic literature, architecture, history, nature …. Your learners could be inspired by visiting artists' studios and workplaces. The whole spectrum of art disciplines will be represented at the festival: painting, photography, fine art ceramics, textiles, film, food, sculpture, poetry, performance, installation, graphic design, printmaking, furniture design and more.


Resources for visitors

The full E17 Art Trail Guide will be available online from 1st May. A Trail Guide will be delivered to each school setting for reference and planning.
The e17arttrailschoolyard.blogspot.co.uk blog shares news of our young exhibitors and identifies some exhibitions and events that especially illuminate the school curricula including the influence of history, literature, science, physical geography, and current affairs upon artist’s work.

 Exploring the E17 Art Trail

You may choose to prepare your learners to :
