“...The paradox of real human creativity is that it is not the flexing of our human – our created will… the imposing of order, the dredging up of something new out of the depths of our interiority.
Our creativity is most fully and freely expressed as humans, when we, as artists, stand back and let be…That it is so far from being an exercise of will–much more an exercise of the most extraordinarily concentrated ‘suspension’ of will, so that something is allowed to happen…. “ -Rowan Williams
I'm a grateful to be able to host & guide a workshop in my studio this Saturday, that invites participants to create with intention as we prepare to enter the days of Holy Week, paying attention to what is revealed through the process.
Art as Prayer Workshop with Encaustic is a guided 2.5 hour process of tapping into your creativity using poetry, pen & paper, paint, magazine images and encaustic wax to approach the creative process as a form of prayer.
During this workshop we will create with intention, paying attention to what is revealed through the creative process and less focus on the product you will ultimately create.
Space is limited to 6 participants, so register today if you would like to start your Holy Week off creatively.
I hope to see you there.
