We Create Live is coming to Bristol! And on the day of the event, an artist will be making work in Cass Art Bristol, so make sure you stop by.
A series of ongoing events for both established and emerging artists, We Create Live gives artists a chance to make work live in front of an audience, and gives art-lovers a chance to watch the artwork unfurl before their eyes. The events are primarily about inspiring artists and fans alike across the country - and championing the act of art-making.
Combining painting, art and music, artists demonstrate their skills using a wide range of styles and techniques, from graffiti writing to illustration, with art materials from leading brand Liquitex. Whether it's paint, paint markers or spray paint, artists will mix and match the materials to showcase the intermixable qualities of Liquitex paint, and create a work from start to finish.
There's also a chance for one lucky artist to paint alongside the professionals on the night! Read on to find out more...
The Bristol 'We Create Live' will take place at Kongs of Kings Street, a retro inspired arcade bar at 13-15 King Street, Bristol. Featuring vintage game arcades – Street Fighter II and Pacman will be there – a full sized table tennis and fussball table, there’s plenty more to do amid the art-making.
Wednesday 13th May, from 7pm until midnight.
