Art and Activities
One of the aims of the Penwith Landscape Partnership is to encourage everyone to interact with the Penwith landscape and its heritage in ways they might not have originally thought of. To support this, our Seeing the Landscape project encourages interacting with the Penwith landscape through art - following in the footsteps of many artists who have been inspired by this area of Cornwall. And many of our other projects have fun activities coming up - from Cornish Hedge activity packs, to archaeological trails.
On this page we will be highlighting our work with art and activities - including forthcoming events such as exhibitions and workshops, our photographic and artistic competitions, and activities you can enjoy at home.
As part of our Seeing the Landscape project we will be holding a number of workshops, art walks and exhibitions. A summary of these will be shared here, with full details and registration over on our Events page.
Watch this space for details of events coming soon!
