Series of posters, 2003
A set of 13 posters was made to announce the Network's actions for schools. Following a common graphic theme, each city presented two images of its Art Nouveau heritage. Than background was chosen from the Network image bank, made during the launch phase, while the other image was chosen to attract children. These very decorative images were designed to be displayed inside classrooms where by children could become visually familiar with European aesthetics of architecture, art and crafts. Each poster is bi-lingual and shows information in the local language and in French or English. The set of posters also emphasizes European heritage and its linguistic richness.

Series of activity sheets, 2003-2006
Made for teachers and guides, this guide shows a series of ideas, exercises and games to enable a coherent and original discovery of Art nouveau. Interactive visits are proposed to discover Art Nouveau at the level of individual objects, collections, museums, a building or a neighbourhood. Stimulating the sense was a prime objective; the proposed exercises were created to require only minimal preparation or materials. Thus they are accessible to every teacher or guide who wants to work interactively! Educators and guides can use the ideas that are generated by this tool for example during other heritage or arts projects that involve young people.
