Mother of four, creative arts facilitator, potter and graphic designer, Tracey Hayim, founded live Love Learn in 2007.

Tracey launched and facilitated after-school art classes at a Maroubra primary school Mount Sinai College. There, she facilitated painting, pottery, drawing, printing and mixed media workshops. Children were free to experiment with many mediums, giving them the confidence to explore the world of art.

From designing mosaics to launching pottery classes, Tracey’s initial interest in teaching was piqued when her eldest daughter Samantha started Primary school. This inspired her to design a mosaic at the school’s entrance that today takes pride of place. Soon after, the school offered Tracey a part-time role facilitating weekly pottery classes. Afternoon art classes followed soon after, becoming so popular that in late 2006, Tracey’s new business, Live Love Learn, was born…

Who are the teachers

TRACEY HAYIM | CREATIVE DIRECTOR Tracey is also the founder and owner of Sydney graphic design studio, Metamorphosis Graphic Design. She graduated with a Diploma in Graphic Design from the Witwatersrand Technikon and was chosen to complete her HSC at National School of The Arts in Johannesburg. More recently, Tracey taught ceramics at Roundabout Ceramics in Vaucluse, Sydney. Tracey’s vision Tracey was inspired to create art classes and creative workshops that allowed children to explore their creativity and nurtured them in a safe environment. “As a busy mum and a graphic designer for more than 23 years, I’ve always had a desire to share my creative knowledge and my passion for creativity with children. I believe children need to be inspired and encouraged to express their imagination through the creative arts. For these reasons I’ve created Live Love Learn workshops and art classes.” ASHNE GRILL | LEGO ● DRAMA FACILITATOR Ashne has been bringing children's imaginations to life for decades. She has taught children aged 3-10 at preschools for 21 years. During the past 8 years, Ashne has created and co-ordinated drama and Lego camps at Live Love Learn and at private institutions. Ashne’s Lego programs promote children’s social and emotional skill development. Ashne has a Higher Diploma in Education and a Graduate Diploma in Counselling.   Ashne’s philosophy “As educators, we facilitate children's learning and we are there to scaffold their experiences. Each child has potential and it is our role to provide learning environments where the creative, social and thinking child can learn and grow and their own pace and be their best.” CHIHARU ITO | ART ● TEACHER & FACILITATOR Chiharu began her career as an assistant kindergarten/primary teacher at international schools in Tokyo after completing her studies in Japan and the UK. She spent 15 years in Tokyo teaching children from many countries and backgrounds. Chiharu realised her dream of working and living in Australia in 2011. Combining her love of children and art, she joined the Live Love Learn team in 2013. Chiharu is also a talented wire artist. She uses a special bonsai wire to make unique objects and framed 2D and 3D artworks. She exhibited in Tokyo in 2010 and 2011. Chiharu’s philosophy “I believe in nurturing children’s free spirit through art. I encourage children to express themselves freely in a safe, happy learning environment. I cherish their colourful smiles!” SHAKED SHAMIR | ARTIST ● FACILITATOR Shaked is an artist working with a combination of collage, drawing and low-tech animation. Using these techniques she creates intermediate situations, somewhere between reality and illusion. Her work is inspired by bits and pieces of the world surrounding us. She exhibited both in Israel and in Australia. She is a member of a women’s art collective named “Umm Culture”, which creates performance art. She studied Visual Art & Cultural Studies at Sapir Academic College, Israel. Currently, she is studying for a Masters degree in Curatorship & Cultural Leadership at UNSW Art & Design, University of New South Wales. She has an extensive experience working with children in various art & craft frameworks and in Hebrew teaching. Shaked’s philosophy “I believe every child can become a creative person, but it’s truly important to nurture and encourage children’s creativity from an early stage so they can explore and develop their ideas. For me, children’s creativity and curiosity is a great source of inspiration!” SIMONE SHAGRIN | SEWING PRINT MAKING ● TEACHER & FACILITATOR Simone is an artist, fashion designer and facilitator of Kids Culture Sewing Skills Classes, with 20 years’ fashion industry experience. At Live Love Learn, Simone teaches fabric printing techniques using mono printing, potato-cut stamps and freehand painting. She encourages kids’ self-expression, giving kids the confidence to print their own fabrics. She also reinforces basic sewing skills, teaching children how to sew their designs into a pillowcase. Simone’s philosophy “Sewing is a skill a child will have for life. It teaches children fine motor skills through fun projects. Sewing also helps to develop children’s’ patience and perseverance, nurtures their creativity, individuality and self-confidence and builds their decision-making skills. It also develops their ability to follow instructions. The discipline taught by learning sewing can and does extend into other areas of a child’s life.”
