Art & Prayer Workshops
“The experience of leading people in art and prayer workshops is that making art is possible for all, a joy to most, and is for many a “way in” to God’s healing, loving presence …. Claiming this activity as part of an ordinary prayer life can allow a new awareness of God’s expansive, creative, Holy Presence.”
– Lynn Penney , Praying in Color Presence: An International Journal of Spiritual Direction. Volume 13, No 4
Making art as a prayer, rather than “good” art, frees workshop participants from self-judgments and inhibitions that stop us not only from expressing our own creativity but from entering that loving expansiveness where our hearts can be aware of Holy Presence.
In a prayerful environment – where we have support and are not judged – workshops participants create unique pieces that speak to their souls, with sacredness.
The pieces we make are ordinary in their execution but are extraordinary in their uniqueness, depth and connection. These workshops allow for timeless adult play – with color and form. They allow for the deep nourishment of true re-creation.
