Schools please note: This workshop is for Secondary students.
Join Esther Olsson, Montana Kitching, Beci Orpin and Smiling Mind for a two-hour workshop in which you’ll learn how to make your own vinyl stickers. During this creative workshop you will explore the META principles—Mind, Emotions, Thoughts and Awareness—by bringing to life your own Protector Warrior.
We’ll identify some characters we see as our own Protector Warriors—yours could be a snake or a tiger… and then we’ll bring your character to life using vinyl to create your very own sticker. We’ll add colours and layers that reflect the emotions your Protector Warrior feels.
Your Protector Warrior can live on your workbook as you head into the new school year, when you look at it it can bring you back to the present moment.
Ready to bring your protector warrior to life? All materials will be supplied on the day—just BYO ideas of what your protector warrior will be. Don’t worry—no experience necessary!
To book your students into this workshop, and for more information, please contact our program manager Jen Zielinska: firstname.lastname@example.org
Smiling Mind & Beci Orpin have collaborated to create the META project. META aims to engage young voices through creative expression, to start a conversation about what it means to look after their mental health, build resilience and foster positive relationships. Using the principles of mindfulness to build knowledge and awareness of mental wellbeing, we want to inspire young people to actively apply these principles and change their perception of mental health, and share this with their peers. This project is funded by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria and VicHealth.
