Live Love Learn April Teen Workshops 2020

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.

PETER SOLNESS

Peter Solness is a multi award-winning photographer, artist, educator and writer who began his 40-year photography career contributing surfing photos to Surfing World and Tracks magazine in the 1970s. In the early 1980s Solness took to the Australian outback on a Honda CX500 motorcycle in a personal journey of self-discovery that lasted two years. He had two Olympus 35mm cameras slung over his shoulders to document his experiences. The resulting output launched his career as a photojournalist for the Sydney Morning Herald and the National Times from 1982 to 1988.

 

With the advent of digital photography in the mid 2000s, Solness became a pioneer of the photographic technique of light painting, which involves mounting a camera on a tripod and working in darkness during long camera exposures of between 4 to 60 seconds. These long-exposure times allow chosen subjects to be hand-illuminated using small torches to create otherworldly effects not generally associated with traditional photography.

An enthusiastic teacher and exponent of light painting as an art form, Solness runs regular workshops and presentations at The National Arts School, TAFE colleges, and Head On

and Ballarat International Foto Biennale Festivals as well as mounting large-scale public light events for community celebrations such as Science Week in 2015 and 2018. Recently Solness has developed specialist light painting workshops for secondary and primary school students as way to inspire younger audiences.

NIKISHA JAMIESON

I am an 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.

SABINE JAMIESON

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. 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.

I feel that the ability to connect and facilitate creative experiences for others is my mission for life. I am extremely passionate about the creative process journey, which makes me love working alongside others and help them to unlock their creativity. For example, while working at the hospital I use to guide one to one sessions with patients in which we would work on a big canvas together, my hands and theirs were working as one. I deeply believe that holding a supported and safe space can transform the creative journey into a magical experience.

Art Therapy has deeply shaped the way I teach and interact with art making, I value the creative process over the product and take care to engage the individual and/or group dynamics. During workshops I often introduce a selection of open ended materials that allow participants to explore their own creativity.

I love facilitating groups in making collaborative artworks, empowering every participant in taking part in it and having a sense of ownership. There is no right or wrong in art and therefore, everyone is able to contribute - bringing their own stories, experiences, knowledge and creativity.

What creative medium do you love to express yourself with and why?

I have been exploring and cultivating my art practice since I was a teenager. I have always been in love with the playful expression that drawing, painting and all types of creativity allows us to experience. In the process of making an artwork I experiment colour mixing, new textures (e.g. with unusual painting tools), taking risks and being curious thought unexplored compositions and outcomes. Over the years I have been exploring a vast variety of mediums; but I particularly love painting with acrylic and collage.

Colour Theory has always been at the foundation of my practice, experimenting and exploring the world of colours has been an extremely fascinating journey. I have created big mural artworks, exploring how colours and geometrical patterns can modify a space, perception and feelings. At that time, I was reading ‘Interaction of Colours’ and I remember been profoundly inspired by Josef Albers’ work.

Since I moved to Australia, my practice have been focusing in exploring mindful drawing and painting of mandalas. What I love about drawing mandalas is how it makes me feel, it helps my mind to focus, and experience a sense of peace and calmness. Alongside artworks, I keep a mandala journal, every day I sketch a quick intuitive drawing in a circle, inquiring how I am feeling. This practice has helped me to create my own safe space for been creative while changing country and environment.
