Art on the Trail

2023 Artist-in-Residence

Join us from 10:00-12:00 on the first Saturday of each month for Art on the Trail, a FREE gathering to explore the world of nature and art journaling with BTN Artist-in-Residence Charon Henning.

Next date: December 2, 2023.

Each month we explore foundation skills as well as more advanced techniques for starting and maintaining a nature journal. This is a fantastic way to connect with nature in Bristol and slow down as you spend time on the trail, closely observing the wonders that are all around you. We will have some materials to share but we recommend that you bring a sketchbook with pens and/or pencils to begin your journal.

The event is free but please email Charon directly to register ( Meeting sites and areas of focus for each month will be announced through the BTN mailing list and Front Porch Forum. We look forward to getting outside and sketching with you!

2020 Land Arts Exhibition

In 2020, seventh-grade students from Mt Abe created the Mt. Abraham Land Art Exhibition on the Bristol Trail Network with guidance from landscape architect and teaching artist Claire Tebbs. The extraordinary artwork of these students celebrated our connections to place and to the community where our school is situated. We hope you enjoy the images below and the insightful statements of the artists.

Thanks to the Five Town Friends of the Arts and the VT Arts Council for funding the project and the assistance of Art on Main and the Bristol Trail Network.

Please visit this site to read the artist statements and see more photos of their installations:
