Learn how to use art for ministry. This workshop is designed for ministers, Christian educators, small group leaders, youth ministers, and mission team leaders. No art experience necessary.
This hands-on “art for the non-artist” workshop teaches you how to use basic art techniques as part of your ministry—whether it is Sunday School, youth group, local and global mission and evangelism, worship, VBS, 12-step recovery groups like Al-Anon and Celebrate Recovery, or for special services of worship like Ash Wednesday, Taizé, and Way of the Cross.
Dress comfortably in clothes that can get messy. Bring a hardback book with thick pages which you will turn into your “altered book journal.” All other art supplies will be provided.
