Abstract or Description

This book tells the story of ArtScapers, an Art-in-Education programme as part of the University of Cambridge's North West Cambridge Development. Written as a collaboration between the projects art education consultant Esther Sayers, project manager Ruth Sapsed, Head teacher Paul Ayliffe and Academic David Whitley with Susanne Jasilek, Filipa Pereira-Stubbs, Caroline Wendling and the children and community of Mayfield Primary School, Cambridge; this publication is an account of the impact of the ArtScapers programme on the community linked to Mayfield Primary School.

"An inspiring story, beautifully told –– of how children are wondernauts; of how art and making can change minds and lift hearts; of how using the outdoors as a classroom can transform learning, and bring joy and hope. It's a chronicle of the ongoing, unfurling adventures of the imagination in one place, with one group, which ripples outwards in powerful ways." Rob Macfarlane, writer and CCI Patron
