NOTE: Due to the new restricted guidelines offered from the CDC, Art for the Soul is canceled.

Open yourself to the Spirit through playful art. There will be guided art exercises integrated with prayer. You will explore, as if on a journey, how you see your world, yourself and those you love.  Absolutely no art skill is required. The emphasis will not be on end products, but on the process of being freely creative. The weekend will conclude with our famous Sunday Brunch at the Woods.

Cost: $250 includes meals, lodging, all art supplies. $150
without lodging.
Register by May 28 with lodging or June 4 without lodging.
