Qualified Visual Arts teacher & Textile Artist with unique creative knowledge to share.

Methodology

I believe the arts is such an important aspect of lifelong learning that engages the expression of individuality. I hold positive involvement at the centre of effective processes and learning, where I focus on building a culture of collaboration, reflection, communication and of course creativity! I value cultivating respectful relationships within a supportive, safe and forward thinking environment, where technology is integrated and professional practise, engagement and team work is achieved.

Background

I am a qualified Visual Arts educator and a practising Artist. I have worked as a trainer for a diploma of visual arts - surface design with adult learners. I have also worked leave replacement contracts in several Gold Coast Schools with both junior and senior students. I am active in the Arts community, previously being the Artist in Residence (AiR) at The Walls Art Space, Miami - where I had a solo exhibition title "essential Existence'. I have also been the community AiR at 11th Ave Creative Library Studio space, where I gave circular weaving workshops to participates of all ages. I was also involved in the first round of AiR at The Level Up Studio, which is now located in Coolangatta. I have worked with the Swell Sculpture festival in the past and conducted workshops for school aged children. I've been involved with HOTA and their children's summer series programs. I have good networking relationships and can teach you how to grow your love of art into something more!

Aside from all these experiences I also work at an Art Gallery and conduct my own arts making practice, where I have won and been a finalist in a collection of art prizes, for the full list and to see more of my work head to my website - melissaspratt.com.au or via @create_originate.
