Everyday Stories Published

Posted by Sarah Jane Mason on Wednesday, March 9, 2016, In : Projects 
Now available in print - this fantastic journal documenting the creative process of the Everyday Stories Project at Archway.

This book has been published by my sister business Next Generation Publications and as such is also in part of the British libraries collection - such a huge achievement for all of those involved. 

Well done everyone and here's hoping we can run more projects both at Archway and also around the Leeds/West Yorkshire area.

This month two major arts campaigns are joining forces to create an even more exciting project than ever before!

Early on in the project Alison mentioned The Big Draw and asked if I'd like to get involved and link it with the Let's make Bo...

I Spy Book Publication...It's getting closer!

Posted by Sarah Jane Mason on Tuesday, May 28, 2013, In : Projects 
This Spring I spent three weeks with early years pupils and their teacher Vanessa Sawyer creating lots of 2D and 3D works in a range of media based around the theme of 'I Spy.' The completed works along with documentary evidence has then been translated into a book creating a children's book by children for children.

And the date of publication is drawing closer, I can hardly contain my excitement and so here is a sneaky peak for all of you blog readers out there! More to follow later so watch...
