Art30743530Moms are the most creative people on the planet. We have to be. It's what allows us to troubleshoot whatever kid-related situations we encounter by day or by night. If you'd like to tackle a different type of creative challenge, then plan to take a timeout from life on Planet Mom to nurture your own creative side.

Your course facilitators -- Jacqueline Osmond Patrick, an artist and arts educator who is currently on sabbatical from Sheridan College's renowned School of Art and Design -- and Ann Douglas, author of the bestselling The Mother of All Books series -- will lead you through a day-long workshop experience that will challenge your thinking about motherhood, creativity, and the types of creative endeavours that refuel the soul.

Some of the themes to be explored in this one-of-a-kind workshop include

  • finding time for creativity amidst everyday chaos,

  • making sense of our motherhood journeys and our motherhood histories,

  • sidestepping creative roadblocks,

  • dealing with perfectionism and other common hangups that can take the fun out of being creative, and

  • savoring the joy in everyday acts of creativity.

Expect to experience plenty of "momspiration" during this very-hands-on workshop for artists, writers, mothers, entrepreneurs, and other creative souls.

  • Six hour small group workshop with two instructors

  • Light lunch and beverages throught the day

  • Art and journalling supplies

  • Course workbook


Workshop is limited to 12 participants. Register early to avoid disappointment.  Call 705-742-2035 or email Ann Douglas to preregister. links and more
