Community Arts

I have wide experience teaching and facilitating arts workshops in schools, colleges and the community.

I bring a cross-cultural focus to my educational practise, which also offers cross-curricular applications. I aim to inspire participants to explore creative and positive forms of self-expression, to promote positive self-image. Support and encourage trust, interaction and the development of relationships that acknowledge and respect each individual’s contribution

Methods and media

Working with small groups (10-12 participants) I will work with a range of methods including and media across art forms:

  • Drawing and painting and intuitive clay work
  • Ephemeral ‘Mandala’ creation inspired by different cultural traditions
  • Sound and Movement, exploring the senses
  • Stories and myths from different cultures
  • Connecting to the seasons and the natural environment
  • Creative visualisation and active imagination
  • Collaborative games
  • ‘Senses’ journals and reflective sharing in ‘Talking circles’
  • Mask, puppet, storymaking
  • Collage and other 2D and 3D methods
