“Over the last 3 years I have worked with Lesley in various ways, both as an artist delivering to students undertaking Arts Award and as an independent evaluator assessing the impact of an ongoing project taking place in our school. Her invaluable contribution has helped to shape both the ongoing project and our schools Artsmark journey. The use of her ‘logic model’ helped shape not only our statement of commitment for Artsmark but the completion of our case study using the same process. We have just achieved Gold Artsmark and our focus on evaluation and impact, led by Lesley, was praised by the Arts Council assessors.”
