Artist Mothers Group: Goal Setting with Brenna George

  • Wednesday, September 11, 2019
  • 6:30pm – 9:00pm
  • MAWA, 611 Main Street

Setting goals for your art practice is the best way to motivate yourself to keep producing, showing and sharing your work. Brenna George will lead the group through strategies for staying engaged, identifying what is important to you and growing your art practice. This will involve step-by-step planning of how to achieve short- and long-term goals. Prepare to be inspired for the year ahead. Imagine the endless possibilities!

The acts and demands of child-rearing are exhausting and challenging. While caregiving, it can feel like we are not taken seriously as artists. Some women give up artmaking completely. Others refuse to choose, believing that artmaking is an oxygen mask one must put on before assisting little ones. The Artist Mothers Group at MAWA extends an invitation to all artist-mothers to come and meet other women who embrace both mothering and artistic production. This peer-based group usually meets on the first Wednesday of each month. Meetings are relaxed and informal. The group experiments with art materials, critiques each other’s work and shares snacks, concerns, ideas, inspiration, strategies and support for those who juggle the tricky life of artmaking and mothering. If you can’t make the meetings, please consider participating in the Artist Mothers at MAWA Facebook page, Artist Mothers at MAWA.

Artist Mothers at MAWA is facilitated by Sandra Brown.

Free! Open to all artist mothers.
