As a mother of three, leading Australian stylist Megan Morton couldn’t find inspired options to occupy her own children’s small, curious and creative minds. Sure, she was used to coordinating photo shoots and sourcing props and trouble-shooting endless last minute snafus. But when it came time to wrangle her littles in an engaging, art-inspired fashion, she lacked the support system to pull off their craftiest dreams. So she contacted a few skilled designers, artisans and specialized creatives in her area, compiling a dream wish list of teachers that might spark the imagination of her own children’s expression. And just like that, The School was born.
Held in a beautiful purpose-built studio in Australia, The School boasts a packed calendar full of classes, seminars and workshops geared toward the continued education of creative arts for all ages. From folk art to felt crafts and cookie-decorating to young photography, class tuition includes all materials and access to the tips and tricks of a master teacher in his/her respective creative field. What a genius way for creatives to share their deepest passions with the little ones they love so dearly!
I’m endlessly inspired by inventive mothers who see a void in their world and take measures to fill it. Because sure, it takes a village to raise a child. But sometimes, it takes an ever-so-wise mother to teach that same village how to rise up and create beauty.
