Helen Savage


I've been a supervisor and developer of after school care programmes since 1992 and art classes since 2004. Over the last 8 years I've been teaching in private international schools overseas as an International Baccalaureate PYP teacher and as a specialist art teacher. In 2018 there were over 400 students a week coming through my art classroom!

I am passionate about developing children’s creative-making and creative-thinking skills and confidence. New Zealanders are already adept at these skills and have an international reputation for such. (It's our kiwi DIY ‘super power’!) However, today, creative and critical thinking skills need to be nurtured when digital entertainment and ‘cookie cutter’ solutions are so available and compete for our children’s time and attention.
