Artists create amazing artworks in chalk on the walls and pavements of the High Street Sittingbourne 10 September – 11 September
Now in its third year this unique street art festival brings together professional and amateur artists who will create elaborate artworks on the walls and pavements of Sittingbourne High Street. This year’s theme will be Heroes and Idols.
Over the weekend the artists will be showing off their skills to the public demonstrating the many different styles there are between them. It is a great opportunity to see artists at work and chat to them about their methods. There will also be public chalking areas so you can even have a go yourself.
Working in chalk, charcoal and pastels the artworks are just temporary so they will wash away when it rains, but for one whole weekend Sittingbourne High Street becomes a spectacular public art gallery so don’t miss this FREE event!
This event is run by Dean Tweedy of Marvellous Murals and funding is being negotiated, but if you wish to get involved or even sponsor an artist then please let us know. https://www.facebook.com/events/1595367927460404/
