Do you know Dieter?

Many of you will be familiar with Dieter Schmid’s friendly face. He has been associated with Aeoncademy on and off since 2002. Born and bred in Canberra, he even did a ceramic class way back in the olden days in Teffany’s home studio…

Dieter has a committed relationship with the arts holding a Bachelor of Fine Arts from RMIT and a Graduate Certificate of Digital Arts from the ANU. He  exhibited and collaborated on a series of projects around Melbourne, working predominately with multi-media installations with a particular focus on sound. Dieter has great drawing skills, he has worked on soundscapes for underground movies and is also a bit of a home handyman! Since returning to Canberra in 2014, he has come to be a significant and valuable member of the team — rapidly skilling up in our Vala Dramatic Adventures under the support of Mathew Long,  Andrew Yallop and Sparks Creative Play with Anna Wishart.

Recently he has been in Creative Catalyst, assisting Isabelle Mackay-Sim with the 2D drawing and painting class.

He will be regularly facilitating Tuesday and Wednesday Creative Catalyst art classes as the talented Isabelle Mackay-Sim returns to the ANU to do her Masters in Ceramics (we hope to still see Isabelle running occasional workshops and popping up at Aeoncademy in the future).

This term Monday and Wednesday will see a range of art workshops from printmaking to junk sculpture, watercolours and oil pastels to giant collages.

All our art workshops are programmed and designed by Teffany Thiedeman in association with Monica Castelo.  Both Teffany and Monica have 50 years+ of teaching experience between them and are around during the week to offer support and guidance to the facilitators of Creative Catalyst.

Dieter is committed to working with Aeoncademy to provide quality learning experiences for your children.
