Derbyshire Open Arts.

I spent the weekend at Derbyshire Open Arts, actually most of it in a fellow artist’s living room.  It’s been an interesting few days, people coming round chatting about the work, quite a few who paint themselves and want to know about techniques.  I think Derbyshire Arts is a great initiative, opening up artist’s studios and houses to the public,  encouraging people to find out more about art through seeing artists at work.

However, we were a bit quieter than we’d hoped. Possibly because of the weather and also I do think that sometimes people find going into someone’s home a bit off putting.  I’m thinking that I might do it again next year and this time choose one of the bigger venues, where there are a few more artists and a coffee shop!

Here’s a link to the site if you’ve not heard about this event before.
