Art in the Park & Exhibition – Sat 20th June

Come to Norwood Park on Saturday 20th June between 12 and 4pm and draw, paint or sculpt one of the beautiful trees.

Trees 2
Your work will then be exhibited at The Portico Gallery from 6pm that day,  plus the following day.

There will even be some professional local artists on hand to help, if you need it.  Bring what equipment you can – paper, pencils, charcoal, chalks or pastels and paints. But don’t worry if you can’t, as some equipment will be available if you need it.

We will gather from 11.30am at the Hungry Hippo café – half way up Salters Hill side of the park. And, as part of Norwood Food Week, there will be an Iraqi picnic – courtesy of Athraa and Nabil who run the café, for just £5.50.
