School Visits

There are three options for School Workshops. You can have a combination of
options on each day with a maximum of three sessions, except Option 3 *see note.

Option 1 DEMONSTRATION AND BOOK ACTIVITIES

Suitable: K- Year 7

Double Class Size: (approximately 60 children)

Duration: 1 hour session. Maximum of 3 x 1 hour sessions per day.

Content:

I do a series of 5 – 10 minute activities around each book, including;
drama, reciting, quick question/answer re: environment, and story reading. I
bring ½ dozen original silk paintings/illustrations with me.

I also demonstrate how silk painting is done by painting one fish per group
of students. The school has the option to buy this original 70 x 90 cm silk
for cost price; $150 + GST.

Each child receives a bookmark at the end of the session.

Cost: $500 + GST. Travel costs may apply.

Option 2 ONE BIG COLLABORATIVE PAINTING

Suitable: Years 5-7

One Class Size: (approximately 30 children)

Children are divided into three groups of 10. I provide a creative writing/illustration
activity with the two groups that are not directly painting on the silk. Each
group rotates each ½ hour.

Duration: 1½ hour session

Content: The children work on one piece of silk approx 1.5m x 1m, which the
school keeps. As outlined above, each group of 30 is divided into 3 groups and
teachers work with the other two groups with a creative writing activity, while
one group works with me on the silk.

Cost:

– $500 + GST

– Plus $150 for materials (silk, dyes and gutta)

– Travel costs may apply
