During the painting workshop on the 8th of March to celebrate International Women’s Day, this year we are going to focus on inspirational women the world over. Prior to the workshop your homework is to choose one special woman. It should be a woman you admire for their contribution to you or to the world. It may be somebody famous, e.g. Maya Angelou, Frida Kahlo, Amelia Earhart, Georgia O’Keeffe, Audrey Hepburn, Mother Theresa, Princess Diana, Ann Frank, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Marie Curie, Oprah Winfrey, Indira Gandhi, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jane Goodall, Charlotte Bronté en Coco Chanel, to name but a few!
Or it may be somebody you know/knew, e.g. your own mother or someone dear to you. You choose one woman and gather images, text, information or recitations of that person. Bring these to the workshop to use as a base for a collage-based painting in acrylic which we will create during the workshop. It will also be a fun time to share with others why this person inspires you.
The workshop takes place in my studio in ‘Kunsthuis Houten’, de Slinger 2, Houten, The Netherlands on Sunday March 8th from 2-4pm. Participation costs €40 euro of which 50% of the proceeds will be going to Cordaid Memisa, an organization that supports and educates people in need in the world, in particular pregnant women in Kenia, Uganda, Ethiopia, Irak and also in the Netherlands: https://www.cordaid.org/nl/projecten/. The workshop will be given in both English and Dutch.
