“I think that if you shake the tree, you ought to be around when the fruit falls to pick it up.” Was Mary Cassatt talking about apples or children or…ideas? In this month of Mother’s Day and the 177th birthday (May 22) of an artist celebrated for her paintings of everyday domestic settings featuring mothers and children, we’ll explore Cassatt’s artworks and poems by mothers about motherhood, then write our own poems about the maternal experience.
NOTE: Each session's replay video will be emailed within 24 hours post-session, so you won’t miss anything if you can’t attend “live.”
