Deirdre Korobacz M Ed (Steiner Ed) (Uni of Can), Dip Ed, Ad Dip Graphic Design, Dip Fine Art
Deirdre is a visual artist and educator and is the Artistic Director of Shearwater’s Wearable Arts Vision in Education (WAVE), which she initiated in 2001.
As a Steiner School class teacher she worked to ‘paint and draw the curriculum’ which saw her develop a lifelong interest in stimulating the arts through science and re-enlivening science through the arts. This led her to cultivate her commitment to the ‘art of education’.
Deirdre has 40 years of experience as a Steiner teacher, having commenced teaching at Lorien Novalis in the late 1970s. She was a founding graduate in Fine Arts at the Canberra Art School and continued her art studies at East Sydney Tech in the late 60s. Deirdre is currently Head of Art at Shearwater The Mullumbimby Steiner School where she was a founding teacher in 1993.
