Discussions around the Climate and Environment are key themes of the G7 Summit this June. We would like to give local children a voice and enable them to express their passion for nature and the environment through the medium of art and display their creations around Falmouth with the help of local artists for all to see. Although in Cornwall we are surrounded by wildlife it is sometimes difficult to feel truly connected to the natural world, we are often too busy with friends, indoors playing computer games and watching TV that we forget to take time to appreciate the wonders

In November we opened two travel-themed exhibitions called 'There and Back' and 'Here and There' which explore journeys near and far. Unfortunately you can't see them in person at the moment so we thought we would adapt Eve's wonderful activity sheet for children so it can be enjoyed at home. If you have a printer then just print the PDF and scroll below to find images of all of the artwork. If you don't have a printer then you can collect a paper copy from the library when you pick up your books (when it re-opens). Activity-sheet-Jan-21-printDownload Unknown Artist
