As a continuation of last week’s discussion, we will talk about women who have made impacts on our lives. Who is important to you & what makes them so important? Is it kindness? Caring? Strength? Bravery? Some things are hard to express, but let’s paint what these heroes mean to us & how they make us feel. It may be someone you know, or someone historically or culturally important. You may even want to give your painting as a gift to show someone how special they are.
