Summary

Working with Arts for Health Cornwall and Isles of Scilly (AFHC), Penlee House Gallery & Museum in Penzance organised a 10-week project aimed at adults living in the community who may be experiencing isolation, low mood, anxiety, or suffering from long-term chronic health problems. The group of adults and their friends/carers spent one afternoon session a week at the Gallery learning art skills based on an understanding and appreciation of the artworks on display. They were supported by an artist/facilitator who helped the participants learn new, often challenging technical skills, such as printmaking. Outcomes for this project were for participants to have developed new skills and knowledge, gained a sense of achievement, increased their social networks and had an enjoyable and positive experience. The culmination of the project was an exhibition of work produced during the workshops in the Gallery.
