BBC Big Painting Challenge finalist Amy Goldring will be joining other artists at Chiltern Arts Fest Live 2015 on the 11–12 July where they will be demonstrating their arts live in the Museum’s historic buildings.

Chiltern Arts Fest Live is an innovative new arts festival at Chiltern Open Air Museum, with a team of over 15 artists and makers, many of whom are also making their mark on the national arts scene in the UK. Visitors can meet the artists, see them working close-up and view or buy their recent works. The doors open from 10-5 both days and there are also special artistic activities for children of all ages in the “Creation Factory”, based in one of the Museum’s historic barns.

Demonstrating artists include: Amy Goldring, finalist of the BBC Big Painting Challenge, Richard Ballantyne, potter, known nationally for his amazing animal Raku characters, Irina Bradley, master iconographer, who teaches at the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts in London and Jan Munro, Buckinghamshire painter, winner of three recent prestigious national awards at the Mall Galleries this summer for her ‘Wicked Watercolour’ technique and Pastel excellence.
