This course for teachers shares the philosophies we believe in and base our programmes around, here at Creative Matters.
Teachers are guided through a rich creative process of exploring, experimenting, creating, reflecting and sharing - allowing them to personally experience each part of this process and reflect on how it makes them feel and how it affects their approach, thinking, results and learning, giving them the tools and the motivation to take the ideas back to their classroom and implement them.
Thank you Mandy for the wonderful art workshop you ran at our school recently. The teachers were engaged and highly motivated as evidenced by the way the majority of our staff utilised all they learnt with you into their classroom programmes immediately. They enjoyed the way you delivered your programme, and also the freedom you gave them to be creative while also learning some basic paint techniques. All were impressed with how the session catered for all levels of expertise. They are looking forward to having another session with you. Denise Haven, Deputy Principal Waitakere Primary School.
