Open Art Surgery

In September we ran an "Open Art Surgery" on the Moor in Falmouth as part of Healthwatch Cornwall's open day. 
Members of the public could take part in a drawing, painting or sculpture workshop and point out any areas in which their art skills needed improvement.

They were then given a "prescription" that included a repeated art excersize that would help their skill most in need of improvement, and some art materials best suited to their needs.

The aim of our workshop was to create awareness of Healthwatch Cornwall, who listen to the experiences people have of local, publicly funded care, whether good or bad, and uses this evidence to help inform and influence the commissioners and providers of services. 

We were busy all day and had a very positive response from all participants and Healthwatch Cornwall.
