Resources, expertise and encouragement


Grit Becker-Fainu is a New Zealand-based educator and artist. She studied Cultural and Media Pedagogy in Germany and immigrated to New Zealand in 2007.

Grit’s passion for arts in education led her to her current role as a creative educator. For the past 8 years, she has been designing and facilitating her own art programmes for communities around Auckland. She offers consultations on how to make connections between different areas of learning using art as a tool. 

Her focus lies on the importance art plays in the early years of development and how learning is supported through creative engagement. All of her workshops incorporate visual art and interdisciplinary teaching methods.

Grit is a proud mother, passionate fine-art photographer, ceramicist, and the founder of ROOM FOR ART.
