Somerset Art Weeks 2012 runs from 15 - 30 September 2012 and its focus returns to its original roots - Open Studios.

Somerset Art Works (SAW) and Spaeda have developed a resource pack to make it easier for schools to get involved in Somerset Art Weeks and discover opportunities for inspiring creativity and learning outside the classroom.

SAW Open Studios festival 2012 focuses on individual artists in their working environment, their tools and materials, their inspiration and creative processes.

The pack includes:

Advice on organising your own venue visits, tours and workshops

Details of co-ordinated tour packages

Highlighted 2012 Art Weeks venues

Activity sheets for KS1- KS5
