Live Love Learn July 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 July 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.

CHIHARU ITO

CHIHARU ITO 

Chiharu was born in Japan and has been teaching since 1997. She has a Bachelor's of Education (Japanese primary teaching qualification). She also studied in the UK and has a diploma of Early Childhood Education, and has been working as a Teaching Assistant at international schools in Tokyo, Japan. From 2013 to 2018, she worked at Live Love Learn and together with Tracey taught many little artists. She also worked at a local preschool in the Eastern Suburbs.

In her 20s, Chiharu travelled around the world exploring herself and became a trapeze artist, which made her believe in herself. Chiharu thinks everyone has the power to become who she/he wants to be! This belief has been an anchor for her life ever since. As a surfer she loves the ocean more than anything except children! 

Why do you do what you do? 

I surf because I love being in the ocean and feel the freedom. It is like  meditating in action, very much like Zen practice that I love. I am a wire artist to be creative myself and express what I see and what I feel into my own work. I work as a teacher for little people who bring me joy and teach me what every adult should be. 

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

Art is all around us and in us. We just need to take a moment to notice it in our busy lives, feed our souls with it and let our world be filled with joy. 

What modalities do you express yourself with? 

My favourite creative medium is wire art. Being Japanese I enjoy the simplicity of the line and form created with the wire. I use special Bonsai wire to create installations that come to life. I enjoy how the reflections and shadows become part of the artwork.

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

I grew up and learned Art in a very structured and controlled environment in Japan when I was young, which was very frustrating but this influence has assisted me in how I facilitate and create my artworks. Then later on I was exposed to a Western teaching style at international schools where I learned the importance of nurturing young children's curiosity and creativity. Having worked at Live Love Learn made me believe in playing with coincidences, letting inspiration and creativity rock you on the waves that come and go, leading you to shores you didn’t know existed in you.

WEDNESDAY 10 JULY 9AM - 3.15PM WABI SABI Open

KINTSUGI

Kintsugi is built on the idea of strength and beauty in imperfection. When a ceramic object breaks, the kintsugi technique involves using gold dust and resin (or lacquer) to reattach the broken pieces. The resulting piece thus incorporates the unique cracks into its design, and the gold lines add to the beauty of the piece while strengthening it. This art form is seen to many as a metaphor for brokenness and healing—that embracing one’s brokenness and imperfections can create something unique, beautiful and strong.

  • Connect with your inner self through meditation and a creative movement practice with Kayla Tomé based on the theme of Kintsugi.

  • Create a large collaborative collage to illustrate the Kintsugi pottery technique.

  • Explore the concept of Kintsugi using air drying clay. A day of clay exploration.

  • Take home your art makings from the day.

  • You get to take home your origami pieces.

IKIGAI & SUSHI

Ikigai - is a Japanese concept or framework that assists you in finding your purpose in life. This is a challenging concept for young children however if we can slowly show them from an early age to notice what they enjoy in life, what they are good at and encourage them with highlighting their strengths we will be building kids who have more direction and purpose.

This is a great article to readhttp://madparenting.com/ikigai-helping-child-find-purpose/ 

  • Connect with your inner self through meditation and a creative movement practice with Kayla Tomé based on our theme Ikigai & Sushi.

  • Make your own time capsule with fun questions that you can answer about yourself. Bury it or ask your parents to keep it for when you finish school. It might help you connect with your real purpose in life.

  • We all love sushi and one of our all time favourites with the kids is making their own sushi out of modelling clay.

  • Take your sushi home in a take-away container.

NAKISHA JAMIESON

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.

KAYLA TOME

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 a 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."

 

 

TUESDAY 16 JULY 9AM TO 3.15PM UBUNTU Open

THE JOY OF SEEING

  • Learn what it means to ‘paint with light’.

  • By using different materials, shapes and a range of lighting effects, together with overlapping, transparency and reflection, we will create and develop structures and objects that will be photographed by individuals on their iPhones or camera.

  • No two people sees the same redness of an apple. By each individual photographing the same structure, a body of work will be produced that reflects how we all see things differently.

  • Each person will take home a collection of colourful, abstract and dynamic photographic images.

 

HEIDI MELAMED

REFLECTION

As long as I am aware, I have always drawn and painted. Fortunately, I have spent my life being creative, how lucky am I. I surround myself with images and objects that I love and that brings me joy. I am passionate about art and my mission is to share this joy with others in as many ways as I can.

We are all different and see things differently. No two people see the same redness of an apple. ‘Seeing’ is joyful. Using form, colour and light as mechanisms in my own art practice, I would like to bring to LLL some interesting ideas that may contribute to students seeing and experiencing the world around them differently.

As an artist, if I can inspire people to find joy in art, which inevitably enriches one’s life, then that is a footprint that I will proudly leave.

For many years, I used traditional mediums for drawing and painting. In the contemporary artworld of this millennium, art is considered to be anything! And is much more than paint on canvas. Artists today operate in a multi-disciplinary way blurring boundaries between disciplines like sculpture, painting and installation, and embracing many mediums, like; digital, video and VR. I work across disciplines using mixed media and paint with light in space.

I find inspiration from the world around me. I get inspired by things I see walking the dogs, travelling, reading books and magazines. From watching television and movies, visiting galleries, museums and exhibitions. My eyes are always open to absorb what I see. I am open to new ideas and influences and am willing to change and adapt to the constantly changing technologies.

Graduating with two Master degrees in five years, has given me the opportunity to be part of two very different and dynamic institutions; the UNSW Art and Design and The National Art School. Having been immersed in these centres of learning has changed the way that I see and respond to the world around me. Giving myself this opportunity to learn has been a ‘standout’ moment in my life. But by far, the most ‘standout’ moments have been being able to share this experience with my own children. By them seeing me work while being around them, gave them the opportunity to contribute valuable and insightful opinions that has enriched my working process.

Whilst I do work alone often, it is important to remember that no man is an island. It is important to network and collaborate with other people in order to grow. The power of the collective is immense.

 

WEDNESDAY 17 JULY 9AM TO 3.15PM THE JOY OF SEEING Open

SABINE JAMIESON

OUR INTERVIEW WITH SABINE:

Why do you do what you do?

I love connecting with people, creating art and using recycled materials, so the opportunity to teach gives me the platform to combine all my passions.

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

We are constantly given the message that our world needs us to care for it now more than ever. Art and the creative thinking process gives us the opportunity to ask questions and deliver a message. We are now called to account for our actions and open our minds to decide our future. As a young person growing up in this time of global warming and uncertainty about our future I hope that I can tread lightly on the earth, consume less and support others in my generation to do the same. 

What modalities do you express yourself with?

In my work I like to use the materials that come to me effortlessly, I use collage or recycled materials to give new life to old things and draw attention to the beauty in objects that may have been discarded.

Where do you find your inspiration?

The world around me usually provides me with all the inspiration that I need. My inspiration can come from the mundane and every day man made objects as well as nature and the bush.

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

I am currently pursuing a degree in Visual Arts at NAS, however both my parents are creative and my grandparents on both sides of my family were artists in various media so art has been in my life from before I was born. When it runs in your blood it seems that everything I do is embedded with creativity.

CHIHARU ITO

CHIHARU ITO 

Chiharu was born in Japan and has been teaching since 1997. She has a Bachelor's of Education (Japanese primary teaching qualification). She also studied in the UK and has a diploma of Early Childhood Education, and has been working as a Teaching Assistant at international schools in Tokyo, Japan. From 2013 to 2018, she worked at Live Love Learn and together with Tracey taught many little artists. She also worked at a local preschool in the Eastern Suburbs.

In her 20s, Chiharu travelled around the world exploring herself and became a trapeze artist, which made her believe in herself. Chiharu thinks everyone has the power to become who she/he wants to be! This belief has been an anchor for her life ever since. As a surfer she loves the ocean more than anything except children! 

Why do you do what you do? 

I surf because I love being in the ocean and feel the freedom. It is like  meditating in action, very much like Zen practice that I love. I am a wire artist to be creative myself and express what I see and what I feel into my own work. I work as a teacher for little people who bring me joy and teach me what every adult should be. 

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

Art is all around us and in us. We just need to take a moment to notice it in our busy lives, feed our souls with it and let our world be filled with joy. 

What modalities do you express yourself with? 

My favourite creative medium is wire art. Being Japanese I enjoy the simplicity of the line and form created with the wire. I use special Bonsai wire to create installations that come to life. I enjoy how the reflections and shadows become part of the artwork.

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

I grew up and learned Art in a very structured and controlled environment in Japan when I was young, which was very frustrating but this influence has assisted me in how I facilitate and create my artworks. Then later on I was exposed to a Western teaching style at international schools where I learned the importance of nurturing young children's curiosity and creativity. Having worked at Live Love Learn made me believe in playing with coincidences, letting inspiration and creativity rock you on the waves that come and go, leading you to shores you didn’t know existed in you.

Then later on I was exposed to a Western teaching style at international schools where I learned the importance of nurturing young children's curiosity and creativity. Having worked at Live Love Learn made me believe in playing with coincidences, letting inspiration and creativity rock you on the waves that come and go, leading you to shores you didn’t know existed in you.

CHIHARU ITO

CHIHARU ITO 

Chiharu was born in Japan and has been teaching since 1997. She has a Bachelor's of Education (Japanese primary teaching qualification). She also studied in the UK and has a diploma of Early Childhood Education, and has been working as a Teaching Assistant at international schools in Tokyo, Japan. From 2013 to 2018, she worked at Live Love Learn and together with Tracey taught many little artists. She also worked at a local preschool in the Eastern Suburbs.

In her 20s, Chiharu travelled around the world exploring herself and became a trapeze artist, which made her believe in herself. Chiharu thinks everyone has the power to become who she/he wants to be! This belief has been an anchor for her life ever since. As a surfer she loves the ocean more than anything except children! 

Why do you do what you do? 

I surf because I love being in the ocean and feel the freedom. It is like  meditating in action, very much like Zen practice that I love. I am a wire artist to be creative myself and express what I see and what I feel into my own work. I work as a teacher for little people who bring me joy and teach me what every adult should be. 

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

Art is all around us and in us. We just need to take a moment to notice it in our busy lives, feed our souls with it and let our world be filled with joy. 

What modalities do you express yourself with? 

My favourite creative medium is wire art. Being Japanese I enjoy the simplicity of the line and form created with the wire. I use special Bonsai wire to create installations that come to life. I enjoy how the reflections and shadows become part of the artwork.

KINTSUGI

Kintsugi is built on the idea of strength and beauty in imperfection. When a ceramic object breaks, the kintsugi technique involves using gold dust and resin (or lacquer) to reattach the broken pieces. The resulting piece thus incorporates the unique cracks into its design, and the gold lines add to the beauty of the piece while strengthening it. This art form is seen to many as a metaphor for brokenness and healing—that embracing one’s brokenness and imperfections can create something unique, beautiful and strong.

  • Connect with your inner self through meditation and a creative movement practice with Kayla Tomé based on the theme of Kintsugi.

  • Create a large collaborative collage to illustrate the Kintsugi pottery technique.

  • Explore the concept of Kintsugi using air drying clay. A day of clay exploration.

  • Take home your art makings from the day.

  • You get to take home your origami pieces.

IKIGAI & SUSHI

Ikigai - is a Japanese concept or framework that assists you in finding your purpose in life. This is a challenging concept for young children however if we can slowly show them from an early age to notice what they enjoy in life, what they are good at and encourage them with highlighting their strengths we will be building kids who have more direction and purpose.

This is a great article to readhttp://madparenting.com/ikigai-helping-child-find-purpose/ 

  • Connect with your inner self through meditation and a creative movement practice with Kayla Tomé based on our theme Ikigai & Sushi.

  • Make your own time capsule with fun questions that you can answer about yourself. Bury it or ask your parents to keep it for when you finish school. It might help you connect with your real purpose in life.

  • We all love sushi and one of our all time favourites with the kids is making their own sushi out of modelling clay.

  • Take your sushi home in a take-away container.

NAKISHA JAMIESON

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.

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 a 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."

THE JOY OF SEEING

  • Learn what it means to ‘paint with light’.

  • By using different materials, shapes and a range of lighting effects, together with overlapping, transparency and reflection, we will create and develop structures and objects that will be photographed by individuals on their iPhones or camera.

  • No two people sees the same redness of an apple. By each individual photographing the same structure, a body of work will be produced that reflects how we all see things differently.

  • Each person will take home a collection of colourful, abstract and dynamic photographic images.

REFLECTION

As long as I am aware, I have always drawn and painted. Fortunately, I have spent my life being creative, how lucky am I. I surround myself with images and objects that I love and that brings me joy. I am passionate about art and my mission is to share this joy with others in as many ways as I can.

We are all different and see things differently. No two people see the same redness of an apple. ‘Seeing’ is joyful. Using form, colour and light as mechanisms in my own art practice, I would like to bring to LLL some interesting ideas that may contribute to students seeing and experiencing the world around them differently.

As an artist, if I can inspire people to find joy in art, which inevitably enriches one’s life, then that is a footprint that I will proudly leave.

For many years, I used traditional mediums for drawing and painting. In the contemporary artworld of this millennium, art is considered to be anything! And is much more than paint on canvas. Artists today operate in a multi-disciplinary way blurring boundaries between disciplines like sculpture, painting and installation, and embracing many mediums, like; digital, video and VR. I work across disciplines using mixed media and paint with light in space.

I find inspiration from the world around me. I get inspired by things I see walking the dogs, travelling, reading books and magazines. From watching television and movies, visiting galleries, museums and exhibitions. My eyes are always open to absorb what I see. I am open to new ideas and influences and am willing to change and adapt to the constantly changing technologies.

Graduating with two Master degrees in five years, has given me the opportunity to be part of two very different and dynamic institutions; the UNSW Art and Design and The National Art School. Having been immersed in these centres of learning has changed the way that I see and respond to the world around me. Giving myself this opportunity to learn has been a ‘standout’ moment in my life. But by far, the most ‘standout’ moments have been being able to share this experience with my own children. By them seeing me work while being around them, gave them the opportunity to contribute valuable and insightful opinions that has enriched my working process.

Whilst I do work alone often, it is important to remember that no man is an island. It is important to network and collaborate with other people in order to grow. The power of the collective is immense.

SABINE JAMIESON

OUR INTERVIEW WITH SABINE:

Why do you do what you do?

I love connecting with people, creating art and using recycled materials, so the opportunity to teach gives me the platform to combine all my passions.

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

We are constantly given the message that our world needs us to care for it now more than ever. Art and the creative thinking process gives us the opportunity to ask questions and deliver a message. We are now called to account for our actions and open our minds to decide our future. As a young person growing up in this time of global warming and uncertainty about our future I hope that I can tread lightly on the earth, consume less and support others in my generation to do the same. 

What modalities do you express yourself with?

In my work I like to use the materials that come to me effortlessly, I use collage or recycled materials to give new life to old things and draw attention to the beauty in objects that may have been discarded.

Where do you find your inspiration?

The world around me usually provides me with all the inspiration that I need. My inspiration can come from the mundane and every day man made objects as well as nature and the bush.

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

I am currently pursuing a degree in Visual Arts at NAS, however both my parents are creative and my grandparents on both sides of my family were artists in various media so art has been in my life from before I was born. When it runs in your blood it seems that everything I do is embedded with creativity.
