* 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.


( To register for our workshops, please visit, thank you! )

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."

Let the Wild Rumpus StART: Mighty Girl Art Summer 2014

On Monday August 4th, the wild rumpus starts!  I can hardly wait.  If you have not yet sent your daughter's registration forms, please do so.  You can print and fill out both forms  (registration & disclaimer) located here

If you have more than one daughter enrolled, I need forms for each of them.  (Even if your daughter has joined in the past, we still need the forms.)  If you are unable to mail them in time, please have them with you when you arrive on Monday August 4th. 

Drop off location: The Meadow

(camp begins at 9 am)  *Directions to the campsite and studio, as well contact info have been sent via email. 

The entrance will be marked with a garland of vintage aprons.  Chelsea or I will be in the meadow to greet you at the tipi.  If you arrive early, feel free meet us in the Mighty Tipi.

On days when the weather does not permit us to raise the tipi, we will meet in the art studio.

Pick up location: The Art Studio 

(pick up is at noon)

Dear Mighty Girls,
In the coming days, I would like you to look around for some tiny objects that have symbolic meaning to you.  We will be incorporating these objects into a our work next week.  Think small, like a button from grandma's sweater, a tiny stone that you found on vacation, a feather, leaves, sticks, dried flowers…that sort of thing.

Don't forget to bring your water and a healthy snack.  Dress for mess!

**On the last day of camp we have a closing ceremony and a pizza party.  We would love our moms to join us during this special time.  Closing Ceremony begins at 11 am. 

Made so & rooted by love,

Wendy Cook is a visual artist whose disciplines include painting, photography, book arts, assemblage, and jewelry.  She has been exhibiting her art since 1986.  She has been published in the US, Canada and the UK.  Her work has been sold at charity events such as the "Postcards From the Edge" benefit for Visual AIDS of NYC; Northern Virginia Family Service; and The Fund for Women Artists.  Wendy is the founder and facilitator of Mighty Girl Art.  Formerly a NYC native, she now resides in Northern Virginia.  View her portfolio HERE.

Chelsea Dobert-Kehn is the Mighty Intern extraordinaire who makes Wendy seem like a multi-armed durga.  She is a visual artist interested in combining unlikely elements to create interactive sculpture.  She often uses recycled domestic fabrics and silkscreen printmaking techniques.  She is currently exploring tent construction to create whimsical gathering spaces.  In the future, Chelsea hopes to build off her experience with Wendy Cook and Mighty Girl Art to use these tents for workshops of her own.
