Creating Lifetime Friendships

Women’s Wisdom ART improves women’s lives by providing a safe, welcoming environment; teaching art, writing, and wellness classes; and creating bridges to other community resources. WWA adds an immense cultural richness to the Sacramento community. We need your support to help us continue to change lives and fund our mostly volunteer-run program. Please join us as part of the Women’s Wisdom Art community of supporters.

“Women’s Wisdom ART opened in 1991 and, as of 2020, celebrates its 29th year of serving women through weekly art and writing classes. Nearly 3000 women have benefited from Women’s Wisdom ART since our inception. We currently serve over 100 women each year with 35-45 regular participants each month. Our goal is to expand our participant numbers with continuing outreach to diverse populations of need within the Sacramento and surrounding communities. We are establishing strong community partners to assist with this goal. Our Board of Directors is committed to providing a safe place for women to gather in community for creative expression that fosters improved confidence, new friendships, and new opportunities.” Ali Tucker Lichtenstein, Board Chair

Cover art by Nayyirah Robinson, “Reflections” Mixed Media

Reflecting on the past 25 years, Women’s Wisdom Art has put together an anthology which includes poems written by those who’ve become members of the Wisdom community since inception. The title of the Wisdom Poetry Anthology is “Lift It Tenderly“. We know that over 2,000 women have attended the programs of Women’s Wisdom ART and we have included poets from the very first year, 1991, and poems from the most recent 2016 attendees. And, like a fan unfolding, a plethora of poets between those years.

We of Wisdom Art are living testimony to the truth of these words: Art is the primary survival skill of the human spirit. This book includes the work of 78 poets and spans 25 years of women overcoming poverty, homelessness, ill health, grief, violence and abuse through the power of art. Together, these women have become a community of support and creative energy whose art empowers them to give shape to their lives with courage, skill and hope. We include as many photos of the poets as we could find and an eight page insert of color plates of their visual art.

This book celebrates a chorus of voices, transparent with simplicity, honesty, and courage. Many of these poems are the very first the writers had attempted. Others have written poetry all their lives and received public recognition and prizes for their work. We invite you to purchase a copy of your own or as a gift for someone special in your life.
