This course at Studio One Toi Tu in Auckland (10am–3pm) provides the resources, techniques and motivation to implement creative ideas across the curriculum and encourage creative and critical thinking in your learners.

Teachers will develop practical strategies for using an artist as inspiration and a starting point for creative thinking, and experience a series of creative art lessons through a rich creative process of exploring, experimenting, creating, reflecting and sharing.
