The Wesley Rock Art Group was founded around 17 years ago by renowned local artist Elspeth Braybrooks.  Elspeth was an inspirational and energetic leader of the group but following an illness in 2010 she handed on the art group to Lyn Norman, who has endeavoured to carry it forward in the spirit in which it was founded.

We meet every Monday 1.30pm until 3.00pm at St Thomas, Church Road, Heamoor, Penzance, Cornwall TR18 3JJ

Come and join our small freindly art group for just £2 per session.

Drop in and see what we do - join in and have a taster session.
