Women's art group continues to learn and create together --RSS Feed

By Tonya Villwock, Independent Living Services Coordinator-Branch Offices
IndependenceFirst has collaborated with Donna Lexa Art Center this summer to offer a Women’s Art Peer Support Group for women with disabilities. Our topic for our first meeting in May was communication. At our second session in June, we discussed how positivity directly influences productiveness and better self-confidence. The art directive for the positivity topic was creating positivity talismans. Each group member identified an object that spoke “positivity” to them and then they got to create their talisman using anything in the art studio.

If you are a woman with a disability who is interested in joining the Women’s Art Peer Support Group for the remainder of the summer, here is the information:

Each session is led by an art therapist and is held at:
Donna Lexa Art Center
247 Wisconsin Ave. in Waukesha
Cost: $25 per session, includes all art supplies

The sessions run from 12:45 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. on the following Thursdays:
Self-Image: Inside/Outside Boxes
Self-Esteem/Compassion: Self-Portraits
