I have been working with children from two small country primary schools, Elphingstone Primary School and Chewton Primary School, as a Creative Worker in Schools, for Regional Arts Victoria, over terms two and three in 2021, working with art teachers Kate Meade and Katie Mawson, as well as classroom teachers.
We have been doing lots of object-based learning, and creative workshops responding to items from Buda Historic Home and Garden, and other local collections, including school archives.
Here are a few of photos of what we have been getting up to, more to come on individual projects…
