This popular interactive day builds on last year’s successful day of interactive workshops designed to influence the learning environment for children and educators. The workshops on offer across the day will inspire, provoke and provide participants with practical ideas of engaging with children across curriculum areas. This year we are offering longer sessions to allow for greater exploration of each topic.
 
Participants should come dressed comfortably and prepared to engage, have fun and be active. You will be able to attend two workshops across the day. Numbers for these workshops will be capped to allow for interactive participation, so early registration is advised to secure a place at this day.
 
9.00 – 12.00 – Concurrent workshops
Art as Serious Work – Jacqui Bolt
This workshop will invite participants to examine the role of visual arts in a changing early childhood landscape.
• How can we rethink our practices, expectations and art making opportunities for young children? 
• How can we excite and support children to view, critique and create works of art with fine art materials, and complex techniques?
• How can we create a pedagogy that values sophisticated art experiences and an integrated visual arts program?
This is a practical workshop that will engage participants in both theory and artmaking as a serious pursuit.
In the Clay Studio – Bonnie Hislop
This hands-on workshop will guide participants to explore techniques and approaches using clay as a medium for expression and creativity. It will include the limitations, challenges and possibilities of clay. All clay is not created equal. To facilitate successful implementation of the use of clay within a centre, participants will be supplied with a resource list and information about where materials and tools can be sourced.
