Developed by practising artist and qualified art teacher, Deb Bryant, they closely align with The Australian Art Curriculum Foundation to Year 10 and help students have fun while developing fine motor skills, enhancing critical thinking and increasing self-esteem.

Tiny Art tailored a Professional Development session to suit our school’s theme for the year for our teaching staff. The session was very informative as it linked artists and artworks to our theme and involved staff discovering and experimenting with interesting watercolour painting techniques in which we worked individually and collaboratively. It was a very enjoyable, fun and relaxing session and left staff feeling capable and confident with ideas they can implement within their own classroom. We would certainly recommend Tiny Art to other schools who are looking for a team building experience and inspiration for their staff with renewed confidence in the visual arts for both themselves and the children they teach.Paul Blinkhoff (Principal St Oliver Plunkett Primary School – Cannon Hill)
