Vida Lahey Papers

From 1930 to 1934 Shaw attended Vida Lahey's painting and drawing classes in Brisbane. Mim moved to Sydney in 1935 at the suggestion of Vida Lahey. Mim Shaw was an art teacher and in the early 1940s she assisted with Vida Lahey's afternoon painting and drawings classes for children. Mim also wrote an account of Vida Lahey, as suggested to her by Daphne Mayo. Vida Lahey was Mim Shaw's teacher, mentor and friend. All four items in this series are held in handmade, hand painted artist folders of roughly A3 size containing newspaper clippings, notes, drafts, teaching material, cards, colour charts, correspondence, and information on Daphne Mayo.
