A little about me
· I’ve been working in children’s services for over 30 years in a variety of roles. I have been working at Drummoyne Preschool as an educator and art teacher.I have also been working as an art teacher at Well bank child care centre  Concord and Victoria Ave Childcare centre.

· I’ve attended a many art classes and have spent many hours drawing, painting and creating.

I’ve been able to sell my paintings.
· I’ve set up an art studio in the back room of my home in Drummoyne.
· I’ve been running Creative Little Fingers for 7 years.

My Philosophy
Children and art are a natural combination.
Children create using their own unique ways.
Environment is the key to unlocking their art abilities
Classes will look at extending and developing each child’s interest in art.
Projects will aim to develop:
• Personal expression
• Enjoyment
• Confidence
• Visual awareness
• Imagination
Technical knowledge will be developed by:
• Experimenting with materials and techniques.
• Solving basic design problems.
• Investigating ideas for painting, sculpture, design, print making.
• Looking at styles of past and present artists.
I believe every child has the ability to be an artist — using their ideas, emotions, and life experiences. They however need the opportunity to learn how to tap into their ability and create visual forms.
Art is visual — the classes aim to develop how the child looks at their environment.
The learning process is fun and based on each child’s interests — there is nothing more satisfying than creating.

Creative Little Fingers – Covid 19 safe working plan

After speaking at length to the Australian Government help line, the NSW Government help line and Five Dock Police (Constable Howard), I’ve put together a plan for a safe reopening of Creative Little Fingers.

Physical Distancing checklist

Calculation of number of people (up to 1 person per 4 square metres):

  • Studio (indoors) – 43 square metres
  • Maximum number of people 43 / 4 = 10.75 (rounded down to 11)

Maximum children attending – 10

Implement measures to achieve 1.5 metre distance between people 

  • Signing in area (at back gate) – markings on ground 1.5 metres apart. Sign showing 1.5 metres rule.
  • Studio (indoors) – measured to 1.5 metres in between seats.
  • Outside working area – measured to 1.5 metres in between seats.

Communication of measures

  • Families of all children emailed the details
  • Signs on gate, at signing in table, on studio tables, in bathroom.
  • I will talk to classes about the importance of regular hand washing and coughing rules, social distancing rules.

Hand Washing

  • Sanitiser provided at signing in table, to be used by each person signing in a child.
  • All children to wash their hands in bathroom on arrival and departure.
  • Bathroom wipes to be used as required.

Non attendance

  • Children and their families are not to attend if there is any sign of illness – cough, fever in particular.
  • Children returning from overseas – no attendance for two weeks following return date.

In house artist sessions for childcare centres are available.

From Marni, age 7
“Classes with Margaret are sensational. We have so much fun, learning about different types of paintings. And there is a fun surprise at each class and the end of term party.”
From Monika, Marni’s mum
“Margaret provides a calm and safe environment for creative fun and friendships. Each class is different and Marni was completely engaged in each of her classes over two years. I loved how Margaret encouraged her students to tackle some serious artists in their individual interpretation. They are learning about art by stealth whilst having fun. Simply brilliant! Thank you.”
Best regards
Monika

Margaret of Creative Little Fingers is never short of ideas to keep our daughters busy on art projects. Before they finish their lesson, they are thinking about next week’s art theme.
Irene and I would like to thank you personally for your dedication, inspiration and thoughtful approach to our daughters to learn in a relaxed environment.
We would not hesitate to recommend Creative Little Fingers to other young artists who want to be inspired !
All the best,
Gable & Irene

“My 7 year old daughter has regularly been doing art with Margaret. She absolutely loves it and creates amazing and interesting art work. I also notice that my daughter’s imagination and creativity at home is expanding and I put  this down to her art classes with Margaret. Further, my daughter has some fine motor difficulties and Margaret’s art classes are great for developing her fine motor skills in a fun environment and much cheaper than therapy. The art classes have been so successful that I recently enrolled my 4 year old and she is also loving them and developing her creativity and fine motor skills.”
