Live Love Learn April Workshops 2019

hero

WHAT ARE OUR WORKSHOPS ABOUT?

We equip kids with the essential tools to be successful students and leaders.

Your kids will experience...

  • Freedom to be and express themselves without fear of judgement
  • Creative and innovative ways of problem solving
  • The power of collaboration and communication
  • The power of taking time to connect with their inner wisdom
  • The power and joy of Independent thinking

Kids today feel the pressure to perform and that they are rushed to do a lot. Our kids are experiencing greater anxiety and depression at exceedingly young ages. 

They’re not learning the full tool set needed to both compete and excel in today’s world. Instead, we are just teaching our kids to do more. 

We aren't human doings...

We are human beings!

Our April workshops focus on creating an optimal space to create and problem solve, learning to trust themselves and their intuition.

We encourage independent thinking where children get in touch with their personal rhythm. With thinking groups and pairs we stimulate their imagination and encourage socialisation and collaboration.

Imagine what it would be like if you felt completely free to trust yourself to take risks, experiment and have fun.

CREATING FUTURE LEADERS WHO ARE HAPPY AND EXCEL IN LIFE.

Sessions

Sessions Description Status

TAPESTRY

  • Connect with your inner self through meditation.

  • In this workshop students will work as a collaborative group to create temporal artwork.
  • Explore positive and negative shapes. Create your own stencils.

  • Create a temporal rug design using their own stencil.

  • Explore the undertanding of negative and positive shape through curated art/movement.

 

 

Melding performance art, installation, sculpture, curatorial and education disciplines, Alice McAuliffe’s artistic work moves beyond studio and exhibition practice. Working most recently in public art, McAuliffe has created two large-scale site specific works in the suburb of Bondi, one celebrating the colour and bold aesthetic of the designer suburb, the other a temporal work that has since eroded on the rocky platform of the coastline for Sculpture by the Sea.
 

Her curatorial and education practice extends her performance training to explore temporality, interaction and exchange. She creates experiences of collaboration between artists and participants to exchange knowledge and find common points of understanding.
 

With a strong belief that art shouldn’t be confined to gallery spaces, McAuliffe’s work attempts to dissolve the assumed separations between art and life, creating and highlighting the many moments of creative practice in our environment and guiding people to a better understanding of what they are seeing and why.

OUR INTERVIEW WITH ALICE:

 

Why do you do what you do?

To connect people with art and ideas.

What message/intention do you want to leave in our world?

Art and the creative thinking and curiosity it embraces are not hobbies, add-ons or nice things to do on a Sunday morning (although this as well!). They are part of our history, evolution and life experiences. They call us to account, help us open our minds and define our humanity. Like most specialist professions we shouldn’t expect to know everything without taking the time to learn and listen to those who have dedicated their lives to the research and production of artistic work.

What modalities do you express yourself with?

In my work I curate multi-faceted creative experiences bringing together the expertise of creative professionals, academics, educators and Indigenous knowledge holders in collaboration with the general public. My artistic practice is based in performance art and installation work that is most at home outside of gallery spaces.

Where do you find your inspiration?

This is very much dependent on the project.

What experience do you have with the arts? eg art classes, hobbies and interests?

I have a degree in Art Theory and an Honors degree in Sculpture, Performance and Installation art. I have been working in the arts for over 20 years in Australia and internationally.

 

 

MONDAY 15 APRIL 9AM - 3.15PM TAPESTRY Open

RECYCLE - REUSE

  • Using found objects to create moving sculptures and collage

  • Create 5 objects that represent yourself from either found recycled pieces or reused objects that you bring from home. Have fun finding things that are dear to you that you would like to reuse.

  • Create collage images made from recycled materials.

  • Assemble your own mobile using these crafted objects and collages

 

I am a 20 years old artist studying fine art at the  National Art School, Sydney. Growing up in the hinterland of Byron Bay I have a deep appreciation of natural world and concerns for the environment.

I find my inspiration from places I’ve been and things I have found. Found objects became an obvious choice within my art practices, from shells to wire and old books.

I strive to create innovative works by juxtaposing images and collaging ideas. I find a shared beauty in the combination of found and natural objects, offering a duality between the natural world and the growing undesired waste of humankind. With a love for learning and teaching I have a growing passion for working creatively with young children.

Through my art I want to inspire a conscious living and awareness of the resources we have at our finger tips, in order to create positive change.

TUESDAY 16 APRIL 9AM - 3.15PM RECYCLE - REUSE Open

ENDANGERED SPECIES

  • Meditation and movement to get us connected to ourselves and the world around us.

  • Through a creative and curious mind we will explore our world and the creatures and species that are endangered. Why are they endangered? Which creatures are endangered? What can we do to be responsible citizens of the world?

  • We will collaborate and create a colourful illustrative book with the A-Z of endangered species inspired and facilitated by Beck Feiner - children’s book author and illustrator.
 

 

Beck Feiner is an illustrator, designer and author living in Sydney, Australia. 

She graduated with honours in Visual Communications from UTS Sydney. 

Beck’s creative style has evolved from her years working as a graphic designer and art-director in the advertising industry in Sydney and overseas. Her concepts distil visuals to their essence and imbue characters, scenes and motifs with a sense of fun and a colourful love of life. 

Becky left the world of advertising to produce her two most rewarding creations: Levi and Esme.

While doing so Becky has decided to focus on her true passion: illustration and worked on a wide range of commissioned projects

She then created the original Mum’s Milestones cards plus the first ever Yiddish Emojis. 

In 2017 she was approached by Harper Collins to turn a project ‘Aussie Legends Alphabet’ into a book. This turned into a 4 book deal, with her husband Robin Feiner as writer/co creator. Their second book ‘If I was Prime Minister’ has just been published. 

Beck hopes to have a long career creating books that kids love.

OUR INTERVIEW WITH BECK:

Why do you do what you do?

I believe I’m essentially a creative person. If I don’t draw every single day then I don’t feel happy. Ever since I can remember, I have always been creating stories and idea and bringing them to life through illustration and design. I am very fortunate to turn this into a career and create books that I hope kids will love.

What message/intention do you want to leave in our world?

I love creating kids books with big ideas. Ideas that parents and teachers can discuss with their kids and open their eyes to positive themes like diversity, social change, open-mindedness and the environment.

What modalities do you express yourself with?

I work primarily in the visual medium (illustration and graphic design), but my stories are now commonly converted into narrated pieces, and I also like to discuss my ideas on radio and TV.

Where do you find your inspiration?

I am inspired by my kids who teach me how to see the world through bright, open eyes and my husband who is my creative partner. I am also influenced by Australian culture, environment, politics and history.

What experience do you have with the arts? eg art classes, hobbies and interests?

I have an honours in Visual Communications, worked for over 15 years in the creative advertising industry, have published several books with Harper Collins and come up with at least one new idea every day!

HOME

  • Building and constructing 3D models and using movement to explore built form.

  • Self discovery movement which will connect with 3D built form.

Sammi has Bachelors degree in Medical Science. She decided she wanted to pursue her creative passions and enrolled in Architecture. She has just completed her first year and was awarded the Dean’s Scholar award for her work. She is in love with what she does and applies her logical and creative mind. 

WE INTERVIEWED SAMMI:

Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do because I love utilising both sides of my brain. I love the challenge of thinking logically and analytically through a scientific lens. But without creative thinking I struggle to find the meaning, purpose and passion. I love that architecture enables me to combine both art and science.

What message/intention do you want to leave in our world?

I am driven by a passion to design buildings that focus on sustainability without compromising on design. I believe that great architecture should inspire a consciousness and awareness of the natural beauty of our environment and should bring people together, to foster conversation and shared experiences.

What modalities do you express yourself with?

I love a more “old school” approach to design that involves experimentation and formulating ideas using the hand, but I also like to utilise graphic design to convey concepts and atmospheres created by my architecture.

Where do you find your inspiration?

I find inspiration from nature and our built world. I love to watch how people interact with spaces and their surroundings. I also find inspiration from visiting art galleries, travelling to new places, and learning about the various approaches to architecture from different cultures and periods in history.

What experience do you have with the arts? eg art classes, hobbies and interests?

As Tracey’s daughter I have grown up surrounded by creativity since I can remember! I was a student of Live Love Learn since it’s conception, and then began working here throughout high school. I studied visual arts for my HSC and received a band 6 for my major work, which explored the intersection between art and science. I have run my own art classes for teenagers from our home. As part of my university degree I am constantly building architectural models, and I love creating unique artworks out of them. I attend life-drawing classes and host clay nights at home with my friends. 

THURSDAY 18 APRIL 9AM - 3.15PM HOME Open

PRINT MAKING & TEXTILE ART

  • Create a collage style t-shirts, using printing methods.

  • What symbols do you connect with in nature and the world around us?

  • What symbols do you connect with or represent you?

  • Inspired by the art and style of Matisse’s collage work.

 

Tracey is the founder and creator of Live Love Learn. She loves creating a space for children to be curious through the creative process. I have loved every minute of growing Live Love Learn into what it is today. I appreciate watching many of our children flourish in Visual Arts and go on to study some form of the arts in their tertiary education.

“I would like to see a world where our children feel safe to think and express themselves freely in a society where we can all think and communicate without barriers on race, age or gender. A listening and thinking environment where we judge everyone favourably. Through our well-crafted programme I believe we can be a part of the change.”

I want Live Love Learn to be the space that kids are inspired and empowered so that they can be true leaders of our world. I am excited to be growing Live Love Learn into a valuable creative space where other artistic creatives can share their passions with our children. I want a space where kids realise the importance of their ideas and individuality and discover a deep value for the Arts.

 

TUESDAY 23 APRIL 9AM TO 3.15PM PRINT MAKING & TEXTILE ART Open

MOVE & MAKE

  • Focused on movement this day will be all about collaboration and large scale artworks.

Kayla is an international dance artist, movement educator, performer and community practitioner currently living and working in Sydney. She began her dance journey at 3 years of age and has since dedicated her life to teaching, training, making and performing internationally.
 

Born in Africa with a desire to travel, she has since lived and worked between Australia, Europe, the UK and Latin America. Living amongst these cultures has allowed her to study and train in a wide range of movement styles as well as become involved in diverse collaborations and arts projects which have all driven and informed her current practice.
 

With a background in education, Kayla has had the privilege of teaching and working with children, young people and adults across the world with varying abilities and from diverse cultural backgrounds. Kayla’s work is driven by her understanding of how movement can positively impact, empower and connect individuals and the wider community.
 

Kayla has worked within a wide range of arts and education organisations, schools, community groups, charities,dance companies and alongside fellow artists choreographing, teaching and making work.
 

She has graduated from UNSW with a Bachelors Degree in Dance/Theatre and Education and also holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Community Dance from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London. Kayla is currently studying a Diploma in Yoga Teaching with the Internatioal Yoga Teachers Association.

OUR INTERVIEW WITH KAYLA:

Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do because dance makes me feel alive! It is through dance that I am closest to my true nature, it is how I continue to learn, experience and develop a greater understanding about my whole self, my inner world and the world around me. I dance to belong and to be a part of something bigger. I teach because I hope to inspire and hold space for others to access this same inner freedom and creativity that dance provides for me.

What message/intention do you want to leave in our world?

I am personally and professionally driven by cultural activism and individual and collective empowerment. I believe that all people no matter their age, gender, ability or background should have the opportunity to experience the power and magic of dance and movement. It is my mission to share this beautiful art form with others to help create happier, healthier individuals and communities. Through my art I hope to inspire people to experience the world with empathy and compassion and to look at things more carefully and delicately, to soften, to slow down and to discover extraordinary beauty in unexpected and unfamiliar places within themselves and the world around them. 

What modalities do you express yourself with?

I work primarily with movement but I am also interested in interdisciplinary arts in particular working with sound, drawing, photography and film alongside movement. I am particularly interested in somatic movement - body/mind integration and finding one’s authentic expression through dance. I work as a solo artist, collaborative artist and as a community artist.

Where do you find your inspiration?

Everywhere! I find inspiration in nature, people, the world around me and the world inside of me. I find inspiration in seeing past the obvious and beyond the distractions. To see beauty in the subtle, unusual and unexpected. I am also forever inspired by my students - of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, who teach me something new every time I have the privilege of working with them.

What experience do you have with the arts? eg art classes, hobbies and interests?

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Dance/Theatre and Education from the University of New South Wales. I also hold s Post Graduate Diploma in Community Dance from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London, UK. I have worked within a wide range of arts and education organisations, schools, community groups, dance companies and alongside fellow artists choreographing, performing, teaching and making work both in Australia and internationally.

 

KAYLA'S PHILOSOPHY

"I believe that all children should be given the freedom and opportunity to access the world of creativity that lies within them. Children can come to understand themselves, others and the world around them through the practice of creative learning. I aim to provide a safe and nurturing space where children can channel and explore their self-expression and imagination. Through my teaching I aim to promote inner freedom and inspire creativity. The creative and collaborative process allows
children to develop fundamental life skills and gives them the confidence to carry these into the rest of their lives becoming well rounded, happier, healthier individuals, consequently creating more cohesive communities."
