We’ve teamed up with Cheltenham Paint Festival thanks to a successful bid by Think Travel to GWR to produce a piece of street art at the railway station.
Dice 67 and Slaz will be gathering ideas for a new piece and would like you to help them with ideas for artwork to be painted on the bridge opposite the Charlie Chaplin mural.
If you’ve got some bright ideas or would like to learn some of the basic techniques in design then drop in to Popeyes on Saturday 28th! See below for details
You can also see the new art work which has been painted on the side of the chippy – its fantastic.
All welcome 🙂
We’ve just commissioned some urban art at Hesters Way!
Just days after the end of the fantastic Cheltenham Paint Festival, HWP were offered the artist Samer to paint on the wall at Hesters Way Community Resource Centre. His work in Cheltenham includes the “gannets” adjacent to Woody’s veg stall on the High Street from 2018 and the “cat” on Albion Street form the 2019 festival.
Flower Bird was completed on September 12th and we hope you’ll agree adds a superb new perspective to the centre.
Hesters Way Partnership has undertaken numerous projects to reduce its carbon footprint but we have a way to go to become carbon neutral.
See the presentation below for what we have done and some ideas for how we can step up the game even further.
A sports drop-in a will take place over the summer holidays including coaching from Bridge Football Academy at the MUGA next to Oasis on Coronation Square. Activities will start at 2pm and run till 4.30pm every Monday, Wednesday and Friday throughout the holidays from 29th July
The latest version of the Viewpoint magazine is hot off the virtual press and can be downloaded here. Hard copies will be distributed to the usual places next week. Hopefully that will herald the coming of summer!
The art work in KGV is now complete, the grass settle in over the summer but the seating can now be used. A plaque will be attached to the sleepers describing the work and how the sound mirrors work ready for the opening event which is proposed for Friday 13th September at 3pm.
Local young people enjoyed the urban art project over the Easter holidays helping artist Slaz (AKA Tim Martin) to create this fantastic mural at the Oasis Centre.
The design was inspired by ideas generated in the workshops in the centre and reimagined on a large scale on boarding attached to the adjacent fencing.
The young people learned about drawing letters and 3D effects as well as the difficult skill of working with spray paints. They were even given their own practice boards to take home.
Thanks go to The High Sheriff of Gloucestershire and Bence for their sponsorship of the project
