In Term 4 of 2023, AWESOME artists Kylie Bywaters and Kate Page travelled to Bunbury, on Wardandi Noongar country to explore making music, craft and paintings with the students of College Row school.

The students explored making music through instruments, music apps and singing. Sensory play was encouraged through playdough and cloud sand. The students also made crafts using paints, textas, stickers and leaves to make patterns and pictures. The young artists had a lot of fun exploring their musical talents, and expressing themselves creatively.

Students, teachers and members of the community were invited to a celebration event where the crafts that were created during the week were proudly displayed for all to admire. In addition to the art exhibition, a music station was set up where students could create their own compositions. There were also bubble makers, a fruit picnic, and a dedicated space for students to reflect and give feedback on the residency.

Creative Challenge is AWESOME Arts’ core education program that embeds contemporary teaching artists in schools across the state. The residency program aims to build pride in community and explore self-expression through project management and creative learning skills.

This residency was proudly supported by Healthway and the Go for 2 & 5 message.
