I just wanted to say thank-you for your fantastic presentation today. The children were enthusiastic about and engaged in making their lizard creations and can hardly wait to take their lizards home. Your focus on patterns was great as it supported earlier concepts we had explored. The idea of scaffolding and extending their knowledge about spiders to include their natural lizard predators was also a great way to capture the children’s interest. I learnt something, too, as I am not really familiar with the works of Gaudi – but they are beautiful. You synopsis of the experience was also a great way to communicate with the parents. Thanks also to your able assistant, Sophie.Rhonda Murphy – (Kindergarten Teacher – Lady Gowrie Community Kindergarten, Cannon Hill)
We LOVE Tiny Art and Deb! Tiny Art has been coming to Puss in Boots for almost two years and the momentum has not slowed. Deb has a loyal following and the children adore her. Tiny Art teaches children different types of art skills and gives them confidence to explore their creativity in a safe and secure environment.
Our Educators also benefit from watching and participating in the class as they can extend on what is being explored and link it to other areas of teaching.Jasmine Graham (Director – Puss In Boots Early Learning Centre, Morningside)
The children were highly engaged and interested due to the presentation being relevant to their developmental levels and to their recent investigations into butterflies, insects and lifecycles. I really liked the way in which their work was built upon in layers. This technique sustained children’s interest as well as adding an element of surprise about how their finished artwork would emerge. Because they were so proud, the children could hardly wait to share the finished artwork with their parents! We always love having Tiny Art come to visit, because the presentations are always relevant to the children and of such high quality.Rhonda Murphy – (Kindergarten Teacher – Lady Gowrie Community Kindergarten, Cannon Hill)
Tiny Art was extremely professional. They tailored the workshop to fit with the theme of rocket ships that we were teaching the children, and we all learnt lots of wonderful art techniques, looked at different artworks, and the children had lots of fun creating. All children stayed engaged throughout the entire workshop and both the teachers and children were given creative ideas to extend on the experience.
We will definitely be getting Tiny Art out to create with us again!Leanne Cameron (Kindergarten Teacher – Lady Gowrie Community Kindergarten, Cannon Hill)
This week our Kindy groups thoroughly enjoyed their Tiny Art Workshops.
As one group explored the work of Van Gogh and his famous ‘Sunflowers’ and the other group created their quirky robots, different and effective painting and collage techniques were incorporated. Deb and Chris really engaged the children from the outset, were incredibly well organised and have left us investigating other exciting ways to explore these topics. Everyone proudly went home with their own and very unique canvas.
Thank you Deb and Chris, we look forward to your next visit.Kerry Lucy (Director – Tingalpa & District Kindergarten)
