Art as Meditation

Art-making as meditation is to live the very process of accepting our identity as image bearers, creative ones able to express and extend what God inspires in us, into form that speaks to us and through us of God with us. We will be together, in the silence, in the presence of an empty page, in the first marks and finished expressions of what comes. We will witness each others experience and expressions honoring each artist and the Art which comes. We will close in gratefulness and hope.

Dates: February 5, March 4, April 1, May 6
Time: 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (CST)
Location: Online
These workshops will be facilitated by Rev. Mary Putera LMHC, MDiv. CAGS.
Cost:  $30 a session, or $120 for the series (we encourage you to do the series for the most benefit)
