Hi! I am Jenni Barrand the creator and teacher of the Little Easels Art Program.
I have been running my art program for children for over seventeen years.
I love art and I love encouraging young artists, seeing their own unique ideas and building their creative confidence. The program is for exploring the joy and challenges that art-making can bring. A space for ideas to thrive and be shared. A space for encouraging an artistic mindset of problem solving, creating, expressing and discovering.
I have a Adv.Dip. of Fine Arts and have exhibited work across Sydney. I have a broad experience in painting, sculpture, ceramics, drawing, printmaking, photography, illustration and digital art.
I have a background in film, television and theatre with a Dip. Performing Arts.
I am currently illustrating two picture books to be published by EK Books –
Some Families Change by Jess Galatola due out in 2024.
Hugs still feel the Same by Kiralee Strong due out in 2025
Classes are often booked out as turnover of students is very low. Children stay with the program for many years allowing for me to become familiar with their strengths, assist with their challenges and personalise their learning experience.
I teach all classes at Little Easels and look forward to being part of your little artist creative development!
Our art room is at North Balgowlah Community Centre, Bardoo Ave, North Balgowlah.
