Workshops

Each fair has a workshop corner offering a fun environment to get messy and a great opportunity in people’s busy lives
to have a really creative time.

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.

From their first colourful daubs to intricate pencil drawings, it’s wonderful to see your children’s artistic talents grow. As a parent, your careful guidance can help develop their creativity, whether or not your child is ‘a natural’ in the art room.

Are we born creative?  What is creativity?

Read our free guide to find out the answers to these questions and how to encourage creativity in your child and how to nurture their creativity and develop it as they get older.

Arty Party for Children

Art and Creativity Workshops

The Art Workshops at the Fairs are a great environment for children to get messy and have a totally creative time.

Children are inspired when they work with professional artists at our Creativity Workshops.

The artists teach the children foundation artistic skills such as handling a paintbrush and recreating an image.

The workshops are suitable for children and the young at heart.

Live Art Theatre

A programme of demonstrations, talks and activities by artists running over the weekend, watch an artist take you through the process of creating a work of art, take part in a printing workshop or listen to a talk.

Some artists will be demonstrating their skills at their stands, others in The Live Art Theatre. Come and watch them turn a blank canvas into something quite remarkable while talking you through their techniques and inspiration. The perfect way to appreciate the creative process. 

 

The Prince’s Trust Miniature Canvas Sale

A chance for art buyers to acquire an original piece of art for only £45 whilst supporting The Trust’s amazing work helping young people transform their lives. Contemporary Art Fairs and their community of artists have raised over £65,000 for The Prince’s Trust with the sale of collectable miniature canvase donated by the artists. But be warned these treasures fly off the wall!
