Artist Mothers Group: Watercolour Card Making with Sandra Brown

  • December 4, 2019, 6:30pm – 9:00pm
  • MAWA, 611 Main Street

Free! Open to all artist mothers. 

Sandra Brown will lead this watercolour workshop, and will share a simple method to create your own unique set of watercolour greeting cards mounted on coloured cardstock, just in time for the holiday season.  

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.
