Art Week: your local landscapes
From 31 July to 8 August 2021 we celebrated Art Week with demonstrations, events, free art kits and more. Some of you shared your work with us and we’re featuring them here in our virtual gallery. Art Week was part of our Earthworks project, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
