Saturday 18th June from 11am – En Plein Air
Members are invited to bring easels, sketch pads, chairs, small tables, etc to an “en plein air” session in the courtyard area outside “Flowers of Elegance” in Gurneys Lane (between Waitrose and the High Street). The old buildings provide much scope for art, and it provides an excellent opportunity to engage with members of the public.
Droitwich Spa Underpass Art Project
The Droitwich Underpass Art Project, led by Wychavon District Council, is transforming seven underpasses across the town into outdoor pieces of artwork. The aim is to promote local pride by celebrating the community and history of the town, as well as improve the look and feel of these sites. The first site has been completed. The walkway on Hunters Way has been decorated with a swimming-themed design, inspired by feedback from children from Westlands First School. Work is progressing well at the Paddock Hill underpass. Young people from the Cabin at Droitwich Spa High School worked with Andy ‘Title’ Mills to create a fun design combining the magic and mystery of Alice in Wonderland.
Art on Droitwich Station
The Friends of the Droitwich Spa Railway Station have decided that the most effective way to improve the look of the station, apart from the wonderful planters which are now in place, is to install relevant art work. Helen Karakashian is responsible for organising this and says “The idea is to celebrate the heritage of Droitwich and also incorporate elements of travel”.
