The Affordable Art Fair is back it opened on Wednesday in Battersea with lots of artwork from around the world. The theme this year is colour and there is plenty of it. With James Burke as the artist in residence and lots of up and coming artists which were selected by Becca Pell-Fry, there is plenty to see.
Painting workshops will be taking place where you can learn to paint like the pros, you can create a Van Gough inspired masterpiece. These workshops are run by the London Fine Art Studios. The fair takes place between the 7th and 10th March in Battersea Park, London so make sure you get down and meet the artists and explore the world of art at affordable prices.
There are talks on various topics after 3pm each day, on the Power of Colour in your home, Q&A panel and Colour and Human Psychology, find out more on their link below.
