Art in the Pen is back for 2018 and The Art Shop Skipton is happy to announce we will again be working in association with the North’s leading art events.
Art in the Pen was established in Skipton in 2005 and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Each year, cattle pens are transformed into galleries from which artists sell the best in original modern, conceptual and contemporary works of art.
The Art Shop Skipton will be attending both this year’s events, providing a wide range of high quality art materials from leading brands. There’ll be the opportunity to ‘try before you buy’ on selected ranges at both events, so you can get to grips with any materials you might need. The Art Shop Skipton team will also be on hand to offer expert advice, tips and to answer any questions you might have.
Added additions at the Skipton event include free art demonstrations throughout the event, with artists using ranges that include; Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolour, Winsor & Newton Watercolour Markers & Promarkers, Derwent Inktense Pencils, Pebeo Mixed Media, Brusho and Cobra Watermixable Oils. New for 2018 the Skipton event will also include a live art installation where you’ll be able to watch a piece of art come together throughout the whole event.
The Art Shop Skipton are very happy to again be working in association with Art in the Pen and look forward to seeing everyone at the events in Thirsk and Skipton.
A completely new addition for 2018 at Art in the Pen Skipton is the Live Art Theatre which will be held in the Auction Ring. The Art Shop will be bringing along a life size model cow and sheep, fitting for the Yorkshire event at the Skipton Auction Mart.
Pebeo Artist Leanne Ellis will then bring these farm animals to life over the course of the event by turning them into magnificent works of art before your very eyes using Pebeo 4Artist Markers & Mediums.
You’ll be able to visit the auction ring at any time during the event and see the progress being made and if that’s not all, you’ll also have the chance to take home the completed art sheep, a fantastic arty momento of Art in the Pen 2018.
For your chance to win all you have to do is enter the raffle being held with tickets priced at only £1 each, all proceeds go to Art in the Pens chosen charity ‘The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association’. Tickets will be sold inside the Live Art Theatre.
So come down and take a look at a piece of art being created before your very eyes, buy a raffle ticket for your chance to take the finished piece home and all to raise money for a fantastic cause.
Come and spend an enjoyable day exploring a diverse range of art and crafts for every budget. Whether you are an artist, collector, crafter, art lover or just want a fantastic day out for all the family, Art in the Pen provides a wonderful opportunity to discover amazing artwork, materials and techniques in a friendly and innovative venue.
If you can't make the Skipton event do not worry, we will also be attending Art in the Pen Thirsk, with a pop shop offering a wide range of your favourite art materials.
