I work with schools to create projects that involve children at all levels of the art making and decision making process. We create, reflect, edit and show together, empowering their learning processes to think like a real artist! I specialise in child centred learning, where the project is guided by their interests and inquiries.
In 2018 I am the inaugural Artist in Residence at St Mark’s Church School in Wellington.
Here’s some writing on a project with two schools in Masterton:
“I have just been at the final painting session at MPS I cannot begin to explain what a fantastic exchange I have just witnessed, the kids admired and adored Sian.
“The Pou are simply extraordinary and the ownership has remained totally with the kids, they have learnt amazing things and they could not have had a better experience anywhere!” Kerry Hefferen project manager
