The workshops are suitable for adults and children and are free. Drop in sessions will be running over the whole weekend.
Children’s Art Quest
Young visitors to the fair can show us just how much they know about art (probably more than mum and dad) by filling out a questionnaire about art techniques and artists exhibiting at the fair. A fun way for budding art enthusiasts to engage in the world of contemporary art.
Of course there will be prizes- Loxley Colour mini canvas and easel for every participant.
The Prince’s Trust Miniature Canvas Sale
