The creative act is fundamental in providing an opportunity for children to connect with their innate creativity whilst having fun! Join artist and arts educator Christine Simpson to explore a range of techniques/materials focusing on building foundational skills whilst children find and develop their creative expression. Watercolour, pencil, charcoal, clay and pastels will be among the materials used to build unique compositions. We will weave into our work the seasons, nature, dreams and story as we draw inspiration from life & imagination.

Week 1: My Favourite Marsupial: The Koala

Children will hand build in clay to create their special favourite marsupial which will be fired and then painted to take home and enjoy.
