Wisdom and Wonder: Exploring Beauty and Faith for Artists and Amateurs

Coming up: March 7 and 14

Have you ever wondered how your Christian walk could be strengthened, deepened, and enriched by spiritual reflection through artistic mediums such as visual art, music, creative writing, or film?

Anyone interested in exploring the relationship between art and faith is invited to participate in two Saturday conversations in March. Those interested may also participate in an optional practical component of creating new art for Good Friday’s meditation on Jesus’ 7 Last Words.

Individuals will read and discuss a few sections from Christine Valters Paintner’s book, The Artist’s Rule: Nurturing your creative soul with monastic wisdom, and Cecilia González-Andrieu’s book, Bridge to Wonder: Art as Gospel of Beauty. Those individuals who are creative artists will be invited to share some of their art with the group. You need not be a visual artist to join us!

You can order the book through Amazon.com using our affiliate link. Visit our Recommended Reading page for more information.

March 7 and 14, 10-11:30 AM; Optional March 21 for collaborative sharing of artwork in progress.

Please RSVP to Emily Zimbrick-Rogers at emilyzimbrickrogers@gmail.com or 312-505-6880.

Please let Emily know if childcare is needed.
