The fifth ArtWaves Festival returned to Bridlington Spa with a vibrant weekend filled to the brim with creativity.
Festival attendees saw and experienced a wide range of art activities and experiences in the biggest visual arts showcase yet, bringing traditional, digital, contemporary and urban art through a vibrant programme curated for all, from the experienced artist to those simply looking to get creative.
The festival included free artist drop-in sessions for those who wanted to try their hand at something new, and even an introduction to watercolour to uncovering new ways of painting with kitchen implements.
ArtWaves also incorporated a new strand, highlighting issues around plastic pollution through the new environmental stand with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and RSPB. A giant fish created by students from East Riding College was used as a receptacle for plastic bottles and was in use outside the Spa.
Festival Director Lauren Frost, said: “The event was bigger and better than anything we have delivered before with such an incredible mix of activities and opportunities to get involved with locals and visitors alike.
