Creative Experiences for children & their community 

Welcome to Creative Explorers!

Work with a professional artist, early years teacher and creative consultant who will develop a personalised, playful, engaging program to suit your communities needs.

The Program

Our unique program is tailored to your environment. We work with you to support your children and staff to learn through creative processes, inquiry and exploration in playful and engaging ways. We collaborate with your community goals, philosophies, developmental, social and emotional needs, through creative and contemporary approaches. Our facilitated sessions aim to deepen and broaden children's experiences and curiosity while nurturing their creativity, confidence, well-being, critical thinking, collaboration and imagination. Depending on your children's needs and interests, our sessions allow for open ended playful and sensory explorations, or more specific process lead and inquiry based projects. The programs developed and delivered are a combination of experiences across visual art forms, drama and storytelling, movement, music, mindfulness, collaboration and community engagement as outlined in more detail below. 

We offer:

  • One off workshops for groups of children in their educational learning environments

  • Professional development experiences for educational staff

  • 5-10 week projects with a class of children and their teachers/ educators 

  • Weekly ongoing sessions as part of a kindergarten, early childhood/ school setting.

Visual Arts

The children have the opportunity to experience various visual art materials and techniques while investigating topics and ideas of interest.  From process art experiences to projects based inquiry children grow confidence, connections and build new skills. Alongside this children also become more familiar with various artists, illustrators and authors and ways they can capture and share their own stories, experiences and emotions using art techniques such as drawing, painting, installation, photography, mixed media, collage, printing and more.

Dramatic Play, Storytelling & Performing

Through enrolling in imaginative and dramatic play children explore creative ways to express themselves through play, storytelling, theatre games, puppetry, performing, singing and movement. These sessions support children to express themselves, grow their confidence, imagination, social and emotional skills in supportive, fun and collaborative ways.

Nature, Movement & Well-being

Connecting with nature is a wonderful way to inspire creativity and enhance greater well-being in our bodies and minds. Through these sessions children are encouraged and supported to respond to their natural environments  while connecting with their senses and each other in playful and creative ways.  These sessions help to explore ways to connect with nature to help regulate emotions, open our senses, connect with our breath and bodies. This allows for opportunities to observe the different patterns ,colours, textures and rhythms of nature.

Investigating & Exploring 

Working creatively is a wonderful way for children and their grown ups to learn about the world around them. Through inquiry children can research their interests as they extend on their existing knowledge and ideas. This inquiry based approach is an important part of the Creative Explorers experience and helps to provide children with opportunities to discover and grow their interests while deepening their connections.

The possibilities are endless. These types of projects can be delivered with your community as part of an ongoing program or as a part of a shorter/ one off project.
