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 a more inclusive understanding of human presence, and giving opportunity for respectful discussion, social awareness and a surfacing overtime of ranging cultural stories and art-forms.  Students gain so much through our community and are blessed with the inclusion of personal spiritualities and cultures. 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.

" It's the best fun, the happiest studio...  and it's packed to the rafters. 


All the Studio Kids have so much enjoyment from the Enrichment of Art Studio."
