Creative Contemplative Prayer Class

The live Zoom class has ended, but a self-paced, online version is coming in 2023.

With purpose and intention, let’s playfully explore creative ways to pray. God is the Creator, and, as His created ones, we are also creative and can use creativity to draw closer to Him. Let’s explore different ways of doing just that using various art supplies, music, movement, words, lines, colors, collage, marks on a page or canvas, etc. The possibilities of connecting with God in this way are limitless, so please come, and stretch yourselves beyond limitations in a fun, enjoyable, unique way of praying. While my belief follows a Christian tradition, please feel free to participate whatever your religious preference is.

Mixed Media Art Journaling Class for 9 year olds and up

Mondays live on Zoom (no recordings), 1:00 - 1:50 p.m. ET. January 30 - May 8, no class on March 13. May 15 is a "bonus" day for students who don't miss any classes and it is a "make up" day for students who miss any class. There is no charge for May 15.

Theme for this semester: "Me in the Story - Creative Interacting with the Book of Matthew." Using a variety of art supplies and techniques students will learn to express themselves using Mixed Media Art Journaling. No art experience is necessary. Students can use whatever art supplies they have on hand, ie: watercolor paints, acrylic paints, markers, crayons, colored pencils and pens, paint sticks, scissors, hair dryer, etc. Paper that can hold up to being painted on, glued on, collaged on is preferable. An art journal specifically for mixed media is recommended. Gluing or taping regular copy paper together can be done also. I am flexible and will go with whatever supplies students bring to each class, although I might request certain supplies for some lessons. I am also flexible regarding actual age if parents believe a child is “ready” to participate at 8 years old it's fine with me.

Please email if you have questions and for cost and payment info. If more than one student in a family signs up, a discount can be applied. Payment in full is due upon sign-up. A Zoom link for the class will be provided after payment is received. This class is based on the honor system.... please do not have children participate in the background if they are not paid students.
