Creative Portfolio Workshop

Visual arts workshop for new educators

This workshop has been developed to introduce a range of materials, techniques and projects suitable for delivery in educational contexts from early childhood to upper primary school. Four expressive forms will be explored and each component will include an introduction to materials, techniques and an art project adaptable to a range of themes and ages. The workshop will include an interactive gallery tour modelling a range of art appreciation strategies for children.

Expressive forms and themes:

• Hand built clay forms – faces
• Simple printmaking – exploration of pattern making
• Drawing – still life – based on shapes
• Abstract Painting – colour mixing with a ‘game’ outcome


• Clay: pinch pot, imprinting and sculpting
• Printmaking: mono-printing, foam plate printing and presentation
• Painting: application techniques, colour mixing, blending and masking
