Girls Art and Maker Group 

Empowering immigrant and refugee women through creative expression.

Girls Art and Maker Group is a monthly meetup for immigrant and refugee teen women to create art and share stories, build community and leadership skills, and gain mentorship. The program combines creative expression workshops, facilitated dialogue sessions, professional development activities, and field trips to art studios and cultural events and landmarks throughout the Pittsburgh region.

Through the program, participants develop friendships, engage in art-making workshops to share stories, become part of a larger network of refugee women and artists in the Pittsburgh region, gain mentorship from peers and caring adult women facilitators, and identify strategies for managing stress and opportunities to overcome barriers to achieving success.
