About Creative Exchange: Kickstart Arts value community skills and knowledge, so we started up Creative Exchange – Hobart’s newest destination for teaching, learning, sharing and collaborating!
Sheree Martin’s passion for process-guided practice was shaped while studying at New Zealand’s School of Creativity and Art, where she was encouraged to explore her imagination whilst nurturing her creativity and wellbeing.
After focussing on her own creative practice, Sheree worked within adult community arts and also became a mother. Having children inspired the creation of her business, The Little Red Art Shed, which travels across Tasmania to bring art experiences to young children and families.
Sheree is passionate about sharing the joy and richness of engaging in ‘the process’ through her own arts practice, within her community arts, education support and of course The Little Red Art Shed.
