Aboriginal Inspired Art
PRESENTER Jessica Staines
The Koori Curriculum is an Aboriginal early childhood consultancy service based in Sydney’s inner west. Consultants at the Koori Curriculum facilitate a range of professional development workshops for educators that help guide the inclusion of Aboriginal perspectives in early childhood curriculums.
The Koori Curriculum is operated by Jessica Staines a Wiradjuri woman who is also an early childhood teacher. Jessica has worked in early childhood for over ten years in both urban and rural services.
Whilst working in early childhood Jessica naturally found herself supporting educators to become more culturally aware and feel confident in embedding Aboriginal perspectives in their program
About the session
Aboriginal inspired art experience in an early childhood context is so much more than just collaged red, black and yellow flags and cotton bud dot paintings. This workshop will inspire educators and open them up to the many possibilities.
The content will support you as an educator to introduce more meaningful art experiences into your practice. Participants will be exposed to children’s literature and art movements that support the inclusion of Aboriginal perspectives in their art curriculum.
Participants will also have the opportunity to express their creative self through a practical hands on art experience
