ART PLAYGROUP IS BACK Wednesdays & Fridays!  

A Letter from the Founder

Hi! I'm Danielle, Mum of our feisty studio name-sake, qualified Primary teacher, experienced Art Educator, recycled materials hoarder, crafter and all-round manager of things. I created this space 4 years ago after 20 years of Art teaching and working in Primary Schools. I have a Bachelor of Fine Art Printmaking from VCA (Melbourne) as well as my teaching qualifications. I write occasional blog posts for, do some freelance crafting and cohost the #makecreateplay challenge on Insta.

My favourite unattributed quote is "Art makes Children Powerful" and it's easy to see how that's true! Creative activities empower kids with problem solving skills, ways to understand their world and encourage innovation.  I like nothing better than providing children with stimulating materials and problems & seeing what they come up with. Pop in and come see what we're making!
