Tutor: Marcela Olea (AThR) – Art Therapist & Sculptor.

As a trained Experiential & Creative Arts practitioner Marcela believes the creative arts can be an essential component for enriching our lives.
After completing a Master of Arts in Experiential and Creative Arts Practice and a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts, her artistic practice took shape in 2013, forming her own private practice CreativeCels.
As an art therapist, Marcela offers art making workshops in group or individual settings for a range of participants.
She sits alongside participants facilitating an arts based inquiry process seeking meaning and understanding through a variety of creative ways.
“As a practicing artist I adapt a similar inquiry process to my sculpting, capturing meaningful moments in clay.
I have exhibited and sold my art work through various group shows and commissions. In October 2016, I held my first solo exhibition ‘Freedom of Movement’ responding to my South American heritage, my Refugee past and my home in Castlemaine.
I have received awards for Best 3 Dimensional Artwork at the 2017 Castlemaine Rotary Art Show and Highly Commended at the 2017 ASV Annual and Awards Exhibition. My sculptures can be seen in various art shows throughout the year.” – Marcela.
