The Art and Soul Series: Session 1 – Art for Spiritual Awakening
October 18, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm MST
To make art is to engage the soul. Art is a medium for prayer, contemplation, and spiritual growth, whether it is engaged at the level of the individual or community.
Join professional artist and instructor Saraiya Kanning as she guides us through this first session in the Art and Soul Series:
In this class, students will participate in a number of watercolor painting prompts, all through the lens of spiritual reflection and search. We’ll explore the meditative and healing capacities of artmaking while forging new bonds of friendship through creativity. We’ll also tempt you by reviewing the subject matter for the remaining episodes in the Art and Soul Series, which will be available for you to join.
Level of experience: Beginner to intermediate level. We will briefly cover how to use watercolor, but not linger too long. Please email the instructor for suggested videos if you wish to practice a bit before the class.
Join Us Online: Sunday, October 18 from 4:00-6:00 pm. Pacific time
