Culture and Community Partnership: 
This is the third hands-on workshop in a series of four delivered by Yarn Strong Sista’s Annette Sax – Taungurung Early Childhood Consultant, Artist and Storyteller – here at FKA Chilren’s Services in Collingwood. Participants are welcome to join individual workshops or all four.


Session Summary: 
During this Professional Development workshop we will take a closer look at the Aboriginal Cultural Knowledge Story which was written by Yorta Yorta academic Dr Sue Atkinson Lopez, to reflect the revised Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF).

The Ochre painting which accompanies the Framework was created by Taungurung Artist, Annette Sax. We will examine the process of creating Ochre works in this style and unpack the Aboriginal symbols and animal tracks used by Annette in the painting.

In this workshop we will discuss the Three Elements of the VEYLDF which include Practise Principles, Outcomes and Transition and Continuity of Learning. Both the story and art work are embedded in Aboriginal Pedagogy and this workshop will highlight the importance of linking Aboriginal culture within early years’ curriculum. This workshop will be conducted by Annette Sax and include storytelling and hands on art experience.
