|YoungMoms and mentors get down and work together on the mixed media
The goal of the project is to work together collaboratively with a variety of materials and media while we learn about women who have overcome challenges and adversity to make a positive impact on the world.
We always start with a great home made meal prepare by wonderful volunteers from the community and then the kids go off to play in another room with the two sitters while we get down to work.

Our first two sessions together had us creating collage portraits of different women followed by a session making exquisite corpses. We are now well into creating mixed media sculptures of our own super women.

her come into her own as a woman and a mother
The girls also began to create the armatures for their figures out of boxes, tubes and other recycled materials.
