Educator/Art Program Faciliator
Mel is an award winning artist originally from Sydney, where she has run art classes for mothers and preschoolers. Her qualifications include a Fine Arts degree and a Child Care Certificate which is equivalent to the Diploma in Children’s Services. At Federal Preschool and beyond I aim to provide quality creative learning experiences that fit in with the Early Years Learning Framework. I will provide a space where your child feels welcome and included, where they can develop their creativity and a desire to explore their interests through art and craft. I hope to align the child’s developmental stage, interests and abilities with a program that is varied, exciting and interesting. By providing a calm , creative space, the children will feel nurtured and encouraged to share their ideas and can connect with themselves and others through the art making process. Personally as an artist I appreciate the opportunity to express the layering of memory, experience and imagination, where I can build on and create through art making as I navigate my own personal journey through life.
