Mothering is an art!
YO MAMA offers MOTHERS the opportunity to make art by providing the time, space, and materials. Mothers receive encouragement and support to express themselves utilizing any art genre and materials. Local women artists come teach specific technical skills. Mothers teach other mothers traditional “woman’s work”skills such as sewing, cooking, gardening, healing practices, childcare, and more.
In these multi-generational, multi-racial gatherings, mothers revisit, discover and share their familial mother wit, cultural traditions and legacies. In our discussions Mothers share HERstories of activism by our mothers, friends, family, and Ancestors.
Art of Mothering Residencies
YO MAMA will work with organizations that wish to add art making and maternal wisdom harvesting to their programs, events and services to women. These art making sessions compliment social and mental health services, provide opportunities for self expression, leisure and gathering with other women for fun and great conversations. Women learn woman’s work skills and produce art for self and others.
