The Graceful Artist
I would like to introduce to you a brand new online event - The Graceful Artist. The Graceful Artist is a brand new concept - a collection of workshops presented from the perspective that our faith is enriched by our creativity and our creativity is enriched by our faith.
Our first workshops will open February 1, 2014. We have a talented lineup of instructors who will share their gift and their faith with you through interactive video workshops. Through the online discussion forums, you will get the opportunity to discuss the workshop with the instructor and with fellow students and you can ask you teacher questions. You can check out some of them here. The workshops will be presented three at a time throughout the year. So, there will always be something you can get involved in.
I will be teaching a workshop called Artful Prayer starting in February. In this workshop, I will teach how to use an art journal to enrich your prayer life. If that sounds like something you would like to pursue, you can find more information about the Artful Prayer workshop here.
The idea of blending faith and creativity is really an expression of what I have experienced in my own life. They have each played a role in urging the other forward as I have moved through the challenges of life. It is my prayer that this event will also encourage, renew, and blossom creativity and spiritual strength in those who participate. Come check us out. We'd love for you to join us.
