A series of creative workshops for women to express themselves, build confidence, discover hidden talents, and have some fun.
The second part of Stepping Up, a series of creative workshops for women, will begin at Drummoyne Community Centre on May 1.
Stepping Up follows on the success of last year’s workshops, Stepping Out.
Both programs use art and other mediums to help women discover their creativity, build confidence and find internal strength to help them manage the pace and stress of motherhood and modern life.
Stepping Up is a joint project between The Infants’ Home, the City of Canada Bay Council, and Drummoyne Community Centre.
The first part of this year’s Stepping Up program was Life Story Writing, conducted by award-winning author Denise Young. This course was run in March.
The second part of the program is Drama, which will be run by professional actor and dancer Annalouise Paul on May 1 and May 8.
About 20 women attended the Stepping Out workshops last year.
"The program shone some light onto things I need to change in my life," said one woman.
"I found the workshops transforming as I sometimes suffer agoraphobia since having my children, and I had also been coping with the deaths of my mother, uncle and a very close friend,” said another woman. ”I sometimes felt so overwhelmed that I had lost touch with myself."
Stepping Up costs $20 for two 4-hour classes.
Child care is also available for a small charge of $5 per day.
The sessions for Drama will be held on Tuesdays from 11am-3pm at Drummoyne Community Centre, 10 Comtrowe Street, Drummoyne.
