Art For Good World Record Event

On the 1st September 2019 Newlyn School of Art collaborated with artist Anthony Garratt and the National Trust for the first Art For Good event. The event was a record attempt for the most people painting a landscape in the same place at the same time. 927 participants registered for the event and a huge line of painters made a mile long line on the dramatic cliff-tops between Land's End and Sennen in West Cornwall.

The event was a huge success raising awareness and funds towards the National Trust's efforts to build stone footings along the Land's End to Sennen footpath to reduce erosion of the surrounding land and protect the rare flora and fauna there. The event was shown on the BBC National News at 6pm and 10pm on the day as well as being covered by a number of other news channels including national TV in Australia and Pakistan and the Daily Telegraph Newspaper. The footage was filmed with the BBC's main Arts Correspondent David Sillito as he watched the event first hand.

The event was also shown with some different and spectacular arial footage on Yahoo, MSN and other news websites. You can view the video on the MSN website by clicking the image below.
