Meet the team behind Les Petits Painters — visual artists, graphic designers, and teachers passionate about sharing their love for art with little kids!
Our team believes in continually motivating and inspiring kids to love art.
Art encourages thinking and using reasoning skills. Painting, drawing, and crafting aids children to acquire much-needed skills in observation and noticing details, and sharpening their perception. These skills will help them as they grow into adults.
We also use everyday objects when working with our little artists to better establish a cognitive link between words and visual clues.
Our primary art instructor, Teresa Carlos, has experience teaching children ranging from Kindergarten to Year 5 in Sydney state schools.
She has loved art as a child but became more serious about it when she lived in Hong Kong and studied oil painting under Eleanor McColl. She continued learning and discovered her love of watercolours through Mike Golding, Peter Dorahy and Marilyn Hayes from the Royal Art Society. As an artist, she has exhibited her art in Australia, Hong Kong, and the Philippines. Her works are in private collections across several countries, including Australia, England, Germany, the Philippines, Singapore, and US.
She decided to combine teaching and her love of art into something she enjoys. Thus, Les Petits Painters was born!
Art, being a source of inspiration and a means of catharsis, has always been a driving force in Megan's life. She has informally explored many mediums of art, from coloured pencils to watercolours, but holds the most interest in creating paper sculptures and other forms of paper art. She enjoys helping children explore their interests in art as she believes in the positive influence that the process brings to development.
Currently, she is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology (Honours) at Macquarie University and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of the Philippines Diliman.
Patricia Herran has had a passion for art since she was a child. She loves exploring and experimenting with different art mediums especially digital art, painting and wire sculpting and is constantly working to improve her drawing skills. Along with art, she is interested in IT, animals and gaming.
Patricia, being the eldest sister of three siblings, absolutely loves kids and can easily connect and communicate with them. She enjoys helping them explore and discover their own passion and love for art just as she did.
Thus, Patricia is excited to combine her enthusiasm for both children and art at Les Petit Painters!
