Releasing our inner artist cannot happen without community.

Community offers eyes to watch the kids and hands to hold the babies while we paint/write/dance/create.

Community reminds us that we are an individual beyond motherhood and tells us what we are doing is important and we are supported.

Community shares our struggles and celebrates our triumphs – encouraging us to keep going.

Community gives inspiration and connectiveness reminding us that what we do is on behalf of the many who are supporting us behind the scenes.

Art infused with and backed by community is how we shift the narrative of mothers only being mothers.
