Children and adults alike have flexed their creative talents and made some beautiful works of art in Rousillon Park as part of the Festival of Chichester.

Local artists who attended Pallant House Gallery sessions were also in the tent, drawing in the picturesque surroundings.

Among them were artists Peter Baker, who has been chosen to display his art in the Sussex Art Competition, and Sam Rankin who hopes to go and study art at Chichester College.

Emily Finn, who runs the workshops at Pallant House Gallery in the city, said the day had been really successful and it was a ‘lovely’ place to get artists known in the community.

Volunteers Rachel Morris and Chris Gould had a busy day helping children to create prints and get mucky, but creative with paints, pencils and weaving.

“We’ve have had lovely morning,” said Rachel. “There have been so many children, absolutely loads of them, so we’ve only just stopped really.”

The whole tent was lined with the art work pegged up around it.

More local artists were set to join in the afternoon session.
