Falmouth Art Gallery's Community Programme

Falmouth Art Gallery's Community Programme

Falmouth Art Gallery runs regular FREE workshops for a wide range of visitors including families, babies and toddlers, schools and community groups. We particularly welcome visits from special needs groups and adults with severe learning difficulties. Most Saturdays from 2-3pm we hold drop-in workshops for families. Younger visitors are encouraged to book in to our twice monthly 'Baby Paint' and 'Little Fingers' sessions.

We also run free lunchtime and afternoon talks themed to exhibitions.

Please feel free to contact Charlotte Davis via email learning@falmouthartgallery.com or call (01326) 313863 to discuss your project or visit.
