People are being encouraged to pick up paintbrushes and join professional artists in an open air art event in the city.

Paint Out Norwich is returning this month for a third year and as well as holding a competition for professional artists, the event is also running a mass public paint out in Tombland on Sunday, October 16.

Everyone is invited to join the competitors for the painting session and people could also have the chance to have their work displayed at Anteros Arts Foundation.

Organiser James Colman said: 'We hope everyone will take advantage of being able to learn from some of the eminent artists arriving in Norwich and also have a go and be excited by the prospect of their works being framed and hung in one of Norwich's most vibrant art centres,'

The mass public paint out on Tombland will run from 1pm until 4pm on Sunday, October 16.

All the workshops are at Anteros Arts Foundation in Norwich and must be booked in advance.

The public will also be able to watch professional artists at work around the city during the main Paint Out Norwich competition on October 17 and 18.
