Creative Starts toddler, preschool and childrens' art classes are the brainchild of professional artist and mum of two boys, Caroline Carmichael.
About the classes
The classes aim to encourage children to use their natural curiosity and explore their own creativity and imagination. Caroline uses a process that encourages children to explore different materials and art forms rather than producing a particular product or artwork. As a natural byproduct of this approach, children will inevitably on many occasions produce work that parents/carers will treasure as keepsakes or want to give to family members as presents.
Caroline graduated from Limerick School of Art and Design in 1998 with a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art Painting. She later went on to study Community Education at Dundee University and graduated in 2006 with a Post Graduate Diploma in Community Education and later in 2009 with an MSc degree in Community Learning and Development.
Caroline has over 12 years experience working in the arts, community arts and education in both formal and informal settings with adults, children, young people, and families.
