The Cretan Brotherhood of Melbourne and Victoria organised a unique event to celebrate Mother’s Day, focusing on painting as the main activity with a fun twist.

The event featured the mothers engaging in painting sessions, creating art inspired by the iconic figures of ancient Knossos.

The Cretan mothers thoroughly enjoyed the event, showcasing impressive artistic skills.

The evening was a blend of creativity and laughter, with the women producing paintings step-by-step on canvas, depicting “Blue Ladies” inspired by the Minoan civilisation and Knossos, Crete.

Seven-year-old Alice Diamanti, a member of the Cretan Brotherhood’s dance group, shared her excitement, expressing her eagerness to participate in such creative activities when she grows up.

“The parents had a blast meeting up together, and their paintings were abstract and interesting. My mum came home elated to show us her beautiful painting. I am sure they would want to meet up again.

It was nice for the mums to do something together, everyone had a wonderful time,” she said.

Maria Tsakakis, representing the Cretan Brotherhood Parents Association, praised the event’s success, highlighting the joy and artistic flair displayed by all the participants.

“Happy Mothers’ day to all the mothers, grandmothers and aunts who celebrated and who will always hold a special place in our hearts,” Tsakalis wished.
