Life is Messy – a creative parenting workshop

February 13 @ 2:15 pm - 3:30 pm

life is messy

When things get messy, what do you do? Do you quickly clean it up? Do you freeze in the mist of all the mess? Do you embrace it?

Dandelion Art Studio and Third Coast Birth & Baby, join forces to creatively explore and address the messiness of being a new parent. LIFE IS MESSY is a workshop for new parents to begin to develop an understanding of how to handle the often messy transitional period of becoming a parent- with art!

Bring your little artists – we have activities for both parents and littles!

Our Creative Process: The art making for this workshop will be centered on the metaphor of mess and how to understand and learn to embrace the messy, anxiety provoking, yet fun experiences of parenthood.

All materials will be provided.
