Hi, I am Kerstin von Shearing, director and faciltator of Creative Gems.
I have worked with children and adults for over 20 years within Child Care, Performing Arts, Arts Therapy and Education.
Having first gained a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Drama and Creative Writing, I followed on to qualify as a teacher and arts therapist back in 2008 from Latrobe University and the Melbourne Institute of Experiential Creative Arts Therapy (M.I. E.C.A.T.) respectively.
I have two children of my own and have been operating Creative Gems around Adelaide since 2009. Using my accredited InterPlay Leadership skills, I run monthly fun sessions. This helps boost connection within community, and allows a space for adults to explore their creativity and joy thereby improving their wellbeing and self-esteem.
My passion is facilitating the freedom and space to explore creative self-expression within all the Arts Modalities: painting, drawing, sculpting, writing, singing, drama and movement.
I believe, I have an innate ability to tune into a person or group and allow them to feel comfortable in trying something new.
