Art inspired by landscape

The team at the National Lottery Heritage funded Our Picturesque Landscape Project are very busy working with local community groups and schools engaging people in art inspired by the landscape.

Currently the Clwyd MIND groups in Llangollen and Corwen are creating two collaborative mosaics of the local picturesque landscape features which are important to them.

Young people at the Youth Clubs in Llangollen and Corwen are meeting different artists and trying out a range of different artistic techniques to celebrate the picturesque landscape which they call home.

Year nine art students from Ysgol Dinas Bran visited the canal at Llangollen Wharf and spent time studying the details of the landscape and creating reimagined and personal interpretations.

Over the forthcoming months there will be many more activities taking place with local primary schools and community groups themed around art inspired by the picturesque landscape with a focus on the Pontcysyllte and Canal World Heritage Site. Open to everyone is the BIG DRAW Event at Plas Newydd on Sunday 21st July from 13:00-16:00 at £2.50 per person. If you’d like to find out more about the project contact us by email at
