Free! Open to all artist mothers.

One of the challenges artist mothers face is finding time to make art. This session will explore tried-and-true strategies for a daily practice, as a way to nurture our art practice while simultaneously nurturing our children. Rose Montgomery Whicher will lead drawing exercises and discuss what has worked for her in creating a daily drawing practice.

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, knowing 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.
