An Expressive Art Workshop
Stress: Paint It and Give It To God
Saturday, October 23
Learn a new way to express yourself creatively and grow closer to God. In this workshop you will discover how to use abstract color on canvas to express life’s stresses—and then give your concerns to God. You will make 3 abstract paintings in a relaxing and supportive environment rooted in prayer and scripture. No art experience is needed. The workshop will be led by Tina Kolm, a certified Art4Healing® instructor and experienced Care Minister at COR Leawood.
All the materials that you need will be supplied—just bring your open and curious heart. Art aprons will be provided, but wear clothes that would be OK with an accidental paint splatter.
Workshop cost: $15/person for art supplies (includes paint, plastic apron, baby wipes, copy paper, 3 canvasses, paint application materials, and 2 paper plates). Refreshments will also be provided. Participant limit: 20 people
