Following are some of the reasons as to why you (School and Student) should participate in the Trafford Schools Open, and not miss this unique opportunity.

  1. Free to enter.

Promoting the event through all forms of media, including online and social media websites, helps to generates a high interest in the show and in our experience the participates and visitors to the exhibition enjoy the experience.

This year we have expanded the entry to include students in their final year at GCE in the Arts, as we believe it may encourage them to study Art into further education. Depending on the feedback, this may become a regular feature of the Trafford Schools Open.

Volunteering and work experience opportunities are available to the students, during the Open and other exhibitions. If you are interested, please send an email to contact@artwithaheart.org.uk
