Art in Action 14 – 17 July
From the 14th – 17th July I will be at the wonderful and sadly final Art in Action at Waterperry Gardens, Oxford. I will be demonstrating drawing and painting techniques in the Illustration Tent and showing how I created my first author/illustrator book “The Star Tree” from conception to design and the marrying together of word and image.
I will be selling cards, prints, calendars, originals and most importantly of all “The Star Tree” Book!
“In 1977, 51 artists and musicians took part in the first Art in Action and 14,000 visitors arrived. Today Art in Action welcomes approximately 25,000 people over four days. Visitors come to learn, buy and enjoy the exhibitions, classes and performances. This July up to 400 artists, crafters, performers and musicians will gather together in Waterperry Gardens to demonstrate their skills and show their work. You can watch the potter pot, the painter paint and the sculptor sculpt. You can ask the masters of the arts of jewellery, textiles, woodwork and glassblowing about the secrets of their craft. In the ever popular Practical Classes section, you will be able to have a go yourself at the art or craft of your choice with the guidance of an expert teacher.”
