Are you someone who enjoys doing art but would like to broaden your scope and increase your creativity?

Are you someone who thinks you can’t do art and would love to be proved wrong?

Would you like to grow in understanding in how doing art can assist you on your spiritual journey? 

Then come to Discover the Artist Within You! – An Art and Spirituality Retreat Weekend.   
You will have an opportunity to play with alcohol inks, watercolors, beads and more. Each activity will encourage and support your creativity and broaden your experience of how art can enhance your spiritual quest. 

A team of four artistic Sisters of Providence will lead this retreat: Sisters Paula Damiano, Jan Craven, Joni Luna and Su-Hsin Huang. Each will offer insight from their artistic and spiritual journeys.

$350 includes meals, snacks, supplies and overnight accommodations or $250 for commuters.
