The Neo-Political Cowgirls will be bringing back their annual January Girls workshop on Sundays from 1 to 2:30 p.m. throughout the month of January.

This year NPC is in kind partnership with the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the South Fork on the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike.

A free creative program for “girls” ages 6-106, January Girls is in its fifth year of crossing generations, economic strata and cultures to gather girls and women together in art and friendship. Normally held indoors, this year’s art projects will be led outdoors, socially distanced, masks required, at various locations. 

The 2021 program begins Jan. 3 with “Together/Apart,” flag making with artist Gabriele Raacke and actor/director/choreographer Kate Mueth.  On Jan. 10, participants will work on large scale chalk art with NYC based makeup artist, hair stylist and street artist Bonnie Fortson.

On Jan. 17, the group will be launching a Little Free Food Pantry and on Jan.  24 they will make sand mandalas with artist, educator and yoga and meditation teacher Aynsley Schopfer. On Jan. 31, Lindsay Morris will lead a workshop on bio-photography, sharing stories and photographing one another.

Sign up is limited to 26 participants and masks and social distancing are required and will be maintained. To sign up, email Susan Stout at npc.edu16@gmail.com.
