Dya Australia, in cooperation with Westfield had the opportunity to host a 2023 Mother’s Day Event at the Airport West Shopping Centre. The event was aimed at celebrating and honouring mothers and was designed to create a memorable experience for mums and their families.
It was a watercolour paint and sip activation with a very fitting theme of flowers and leaves because just like mums, they are beautiful and life-giving. The set-up is picturesque and inviting for anyone to participate in. Westfield Plus members were served with Anther Gin cocktails and some cookies too.
Motherhood, as we all know, can be an incredibly rewarding journey, but it can also be stressful, overwhelming, and emotionally draining. The constant demands of caring for children, managing a household, and perhaps also juggling a job, can take a toll on a mother’s mental and emotional well-being. That’s why it’s important for mothers to find healthy and effective ways to destress, and one of the most beneficial ways to do so is through art.
Art has long been recognised as a powerful tool for reducing stress and promoting relaxation. Engaging in creative activities like painting, drawing, sculpting, or even colouring, can help calm the mind, improve focus, and provide a sense of control and accomplishment. For mothers, art can be a particularly effective means of distressing because it allows them to tap into their own creativity, express themselves in new and different ways, and take a break from the mundane of their daily lives.
When mothers engage in art, they can also experience a range of other positive benefits. For example, creating art can help increase self-awareness and mindfulness, as it requires one to be fully present and focused on the task at hand. Art can also help mothers connect with their emotions and process difficult feelings in a healthy and constructive way. Through art, mothers can explore their own inner world and find a greater sense of meaning and purpose in their lives.
Moreover, it can be a way for mothers to connect with other people and build a sense of community. Participating in art classes, workshops, or groups can provide them with the opportunity to meet new people, share experiences, and collaborate on creative projects. This social aspect of art can help them feel less isolated and alone, and can provide a sense of support and camaraderie.
In this easy, introductory open paint and sip session, the attendees explored the techniques of watercolour painting with supported guidance by friendly experts from our team, not only that… A step-by-step video on how to create their artwork was also made available, by allowing them to scan a QR code and watch it comfortably from their mobile devices. It was the perfect combination of technology and hands-on experience.
After which, they got to bring home the original artworks made by them in beautiful display frames.
