An artful, playful exploration of creation, purpose, theology and story, as we rediscover them all in Genesis chapter 1 of the bible.
This course is built around each of the “6 days of creation”. We will take one day at a time to make art based on “let there be light” (day 1)…firmament art (day 2)…botanical art (day 3)…moon art (day 4)…birds and fish (day 5)…culminating in day 6, where we create art celebrating a land mammal and, most of all, human beings who are Imago Dei: made in the image of God.
Even though we are taking our text from the bible, you do not have to be a Christian to take this course. This class is for anyone who loves nature, art, and spirituality. Together we will play with techniques such as abstract flow art, mixed media, collage, botanical art, and expressive portraiture. We will try our hand at painting things that fly and things that swim, and we will "paint with light" at least two or three different ways.
If you’ve ever wished you could have an excuse to make art and spend more time outdoors; if you’ve ever wished you could gain some perspective on your own story, and come to know for sure why you are alive, this is the course for you.
All these things will be explored through art and scripture, in a safe, nonjudgemental, even playful atmosphere. I’m excited for you to join me in “Let Us Make”.
