artist in residence “Kids on Country”
Rowena was invited by not for profit group, Millennium Kids Inc to be artist in residence for their “Kids on Country” project out in the Great Western Woodland, Coolgardie, WA. This project is an ongoing endeavour involving a group of local indigenous kids learning about the significance of the Great Western Woodland. Rowena was invited to draw and paint with the kids as a part of creating a book. Along with Aboriginal elders and scientists the kids learn about the plants and animals that live there as well as cultural stories and language that will be a part of the book.
