THIS IS THE BLOG/DIARY FOR MIGHTY GIRL ART™! OUR NEW WEBSITE IS LOCATED HERE!

* The purpose of our documentation is to provide a window into the creative process and the interactions within our circle. It keeps the memory of our work together alive and offers a touchstone to revisit later for further reflection by the facilitators, the parents and the children.


Women are the primary resource of the planet. They give birth, we come from them. They are mothers, they are visionaries, they are the future. If we can figure out how to make women feel safe and honor women, it would be parallel or equal to honoring life itself."

- Eve Ensler



Take a Walk on the Wild Side...




You don't need to be an artist to take a Mighty Girl Art™ workshop, you just need to be female.

Creativity is your birthright!

Intuition is an integral part of creativity...as is playfulness, and wonder. Mighty Girl Art™ focuses on these key elements to evoke a sense of sacredness in the creative process, foster awareness, and nurture self-esteem.


WHEN: March 24th - April 14th.
*Registration closes on March 16th.


WHO: Mighty Girl Art™ workshops are designed for tweens/teens, but women enjoy them immensely because within us resides all the ages we've been. Little ones can participate with the help of a big sister, aunt, mom or grandmother.

*There is a translator button on the site so Mighty Girls around the world can tune in!

  • If you don't think you're creative, this is the session for you!

  • If you know you're creative, but have a nasty habit of comparing yourself to others, this is the session for you!

  • If you're shy, or just need your space, this is the session for you!

  • If you just can't get enough of Mighty Girl Art™, this is the session for you!
  • If you want to form your own Mighty Girl Art™ circle with your pals, this session is for you!

WHERE: Online. Create at your own pace, alone or with friend or family member. Host a Mighty Girl Art™ Spring-e-session party and invite your friends over to your screen and join the fun. *It's a buy one, and bring your bunch free!

Girl Scouts, your troop leaders can register once and all of you meet each week to do the projects together!

WHY: Because we are the gateway to this planet, and that alone is a gift worth celebrating. Because women are born creative, and it's vital that we take time to explore this gift. Because honoring ourselves is equal to honoring life itself. BECAUSE IT'S FUN!

HOW: Weekly videos, journal prompts and craft tutorials. These exercises are designed to enrich your life, not interfere with school, work or family time. The class site will remain open until summer so there is no pressure.


What people are saying about Mighty Girl Art™ Spring-e-session...

"It is stunning from top to bottom, full of secret places and surprises, chock, chock, chock and bursting. It is a jewel box. Our girls don't have anything like this and what they do have doesn't leave them time to devote to self-discovery and expression. This is so suited to girls who have suffered their first losses of friendship, of power, of certainty, of love . . . who have begun the long season of being overlooked and misunderstood."

- Karen Maezen Miller
(author of "Momma Zen" and "hand wash cold")

"So lovely! You've woven many elements so gently to create a sweet, encouraging journey for our girls. Bits of wisdom, poetry, media all presented in such a non-intimidating way that I wish had been my experience as a young child. Gracious, inviting and charming, your program is an invitation to have tea with oneself and chat about possibilities and wonder."

- Flo Gascon (Wide Sky Days)

***

"My prayers have been answered: Mighty Girl Art Spring E-Session is SouLodge for girls, and though mine will only be three, I'm also taking it because my inner ten year old wants to be healed through the full-integrity magical offering that is Wendy Cook's heart and soul. Feel her howling call, then walk to the fire with me."

- Pixie Campbell
(Keeper of ceremony, sacred fire and the wild deep)

***

"There are not sufficient words to express the beauty that you have embedded into this offering. I am all at once overwhelmed with joy and excitement and deeply inspired to begin such an art practice with my girls. I have purchased and taken many art e-courses over the years and I have never seen anything so magical. I know it's for girls, but it could very well heal the little lost girl in so many women I know."

- Latisha Guthrie (Herb Mother)
