DAN’s Community Artwork @ Dartford’s Steam Fair

Here are some pics from our event at the Steam Fair in Dartford’s Central Park in May.

We had a lovely time helping people to complete their squares to add to our community painting of the original Trevithick engine, and had fun with both kids and adults alike colouring, painting and sticking with collage!

Thanks to all our wonderful DAN volunteers and everyone who came and got involved.

This Saturday our Green Man comes to life!

Dartford Assembly: Monoprinting Workshop

Last Saturday, Dartford Arts Network ran the first of their Dartford Assembly printmaking workshops. We got to One Bell Corner bright and early with bright flouro colour paints on hand. We tried to not get blown away by the wind! We asked everyone to tell us their favourite place, object or thing about Dartford, and finish the sentences, “I remember,” “Do you know…?” or “I Wish…”. It was great to see you all. Join us in two weeks for the next printmaking workshop!

Here are some images from the day.
