The Art of Giving-Art Program
Chapter 1: The Bear, The Whale & The Lyrebird
Chapter 2: The Brolga (Crane), the Rainbow Fish & The Deer (Stag)
This is a Sienna Art Space program that fosters cross - cultural awareness, universal concepts, symbolism & art literacy in a studio-based, loving, community atmosphere.
The program touches on the potential of art, as a means to therapeutic action and social change. Students begin to develop their conceptual skills and identify ranging definitions of art and the role of artistic creation in life. Erin's aim is to deepen appreciation for people and to giving opportunity for respectful discussion. Students grow their social awareness through creativity and activities. Students gain so much through our community and are blessed with the inclusion of personal spiritualities and sharing their culture. Experiences of a varied nature are honoured and valued. We all benefit from the soul discussions and the interaction of how art breathes life into who we are and gives birth to new understandings overall. A lot of the symbols, navigations are basic and introductory so far as allowing students of this age to engage with what they know, experience and give them interpretation opportunities. Over time that energy builds a personal and collective culture in-studio repertoire around knowledge, & an environmental support for appreciation across places, people and learning availability-windows.
Erin has brought in new directions for writing awareness alongside her teaching this year, with Installation work transparent to Studio students with the Visual - revamp on The Sun House & Wave Studio.

Creative Fun in many ways
Experimentation and Art development are significant for Studio Kids:
1. Play ( further ) and 2. Strength
Children are essentially driven by glory-rich moments and the fun of the stuff they make "It's Art time!" and it's also that period they enjoy with other studio buds ( a kind of confidence in keeping things always success outcome-high is through seeing Processes as valuable and every little activity leads to art-attainment.
Play and keeping outlook & practice strong are a core part of that art-engagement.
Smaller to bigger projects ensure range opportunity. Choice is important for this age bracket so they get significant opportunit to structure and plans there own work. Developing a series is a major milestones to developing their own art message, communicating and introducing their style.
