Workshops to inspire parents and educators to draw with children

We offer:

  • an approved program on the School Readiness Funding Menu of evidence-informed programs and supports for Victorian kindergartens. Find our more here on our Drawing to Learn and Learning to Draw program packages
  • activity-based workshops for parents, carers, educators and children (Children’s workshops), and
  • parent, carer and educator (adult-only) workshops (Parent workshops).

Presented by Debbie Isaac, a Melbourne-based paediatric occupational therapist and drawing enthusiast and Lauren Gardiner, a Melbourne mum of three and author of the baby + me book.

Founded in research, parental and clinical experience and including a hands-on, interactive component, our workshop programs promote learning and development through shared drawing activities for families with children up to 6 years of age.
