Crafternoon artist inspiration: Dawn Tan

One of my favourite Melbourne artists, Dawn Tan, is making brilliant strides in the awesomeness that is art play.

When Dawn is not painting beautiful watercolours and crafting cuteness, she runs art classes for children and adults. Her children’s classes are something to behold! Follow Dawn’s blog, and you’ll see the results of many of her children’s party activities, private art classes, and other crafternoon goodness!

I myself plan on attending one of Dawn’s art classes, as her work is inspiring, and I have a feeling she is quite lovely too!

Want to collaborate?

(I can help you with your Junior Crafternoon!) 
Got an idea for a junior craft or play printable but not able to get it done? I might be able to help!
Share with me your idea, and if it is possible, I'll create a kit, template, downloadable pdf, anything that will help you with your own Junior Crafternoon experience. If you want rights to these items, we can discuss a donation for my time.

Media, Marketing, PR, book publishers, supply and kit review opportunities. 
This little blog is still only small. However, like the small people who inspire us, we are on a path of learning and development too. Gifts of crafting material, resources and kits are most welcome.
All reviews given will be an honest response to the supplies quality.

For collaboration or marketing communications, please email shimmerandglow AT hotmail DOT com 

About Junior Crafternoon

Crafternoon is a term coined to describe a particular time to get together and partake in the joys of arts and crafts. The best kind of crafternoon is had with sweet treats!

It’s no secret that I love arts and crafts.

I believe that creative play and discovery has the power to educate, comfort and shape our minds, no matter our age. As this is so, I have decided to document my adventures in junior crafternooning, as well as the efforts of others. If I get really organised, I might even manage templates and downloads, if you are lucky! Hopefully I can provide you with references and ideas for your very own junior crafternoon!

I love to see children embracing art the way only they can, with an innocence that is needed with which to have self belief. I aim on encouraging that belief!

Want to contribute? Contact me and we can chat!

My other arts and crafts and things:

A little note on attribution.

I will endeavor, wherever possible, to note the {artist/designer/teacher/parent/carer} I am referencing. If you see anything that you can assist with regarding attribution, or wish to discuss your own work being cited, please contact me.

Some of the ideas shared on Junior Crafternoon are longstanding childrens activities that I do not attribute as an original idea. However, all printables created by Junior Crafternoon remain the copyright of Junior Crafternoon.

If you wish to link to my work I would be greatly flattered, but please remember to link back to Junior Crafternoon or Shimmer & Glow.
