Tag Archives: Artist in View
Artist in View was organised as the final event during the Arts Week. Droitwich Arts Network members were gather on the Victoria Square on 28th May to spend a day in a good, friendly atmosphere doing their art and demonstrating their techniques and skills to the public.
What this year’s Artist in View made a bit different than previous years is a French theme – from tricolore decorations of the marquees to the French-style costumes of the artists.
Painting competition also took a place this year and most of the paintings were inspired by France. The music support was provided by Mike Johns on the guitar and harmonica.
The very first Droitwich Arts Week (21 – 30 May) is coming soon and Droitwich Arts Network has prepared a rich programme in the centre of the town. This is a week will be full of different events of arts and crafts for everyone, and of all types, including music, photography, theatre, painting, drawing, poetry & prose and sculpture.
