Paint Write Now, 2015 to 2020: I developed a sensory method of teaching creative writing through art to children. I taught 36 children each week in small groups in community spaces. In the summers and half-terms, I ran intensive courses. I co-created and published a book of short stories written by the children in Summer 2018 called ‘Space’. In 2020 ‘Paint Write Now’ became ‘Sensory Art’ to reflect how the work had developed.
