Art and Soul Creation Guild to meet September 1-3

Become a member of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, Art & Soul Creation Guild, open to all who have a love of art and more!

Plan on attending monthly sessions during the first Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of each month!

The September and October sessions will take place in The Lodge located behind Providence Spirituality & Conference Center.

The September sessions will take place from 1-3:30 p.m., on Sept. 1; 9:30 a.m.-noon, on Sept. 2; and 6-8:30 p.m., on Sept. 3. All three sessions are the same and participants can choose the time that best fits their schedule.

All those joining the guild will be asked to pay an annual membership fee of $30 paid at the time of registration, and participants then will pay $5 for each session they attend. A renewal of registration will take place in September.

The decision to form such a guild was created by the awareness that many communities have art groups which meet regularly to support each other in their artistic endeavors. This area does not have such a group.

Sister Rosemary Schmalz facilitates each event. She notes that usually such groups simply gather for mutual support and members work on their own projects in their chosen medium. The Art and Soul Creation Guild sessions, at least for the first six months, will have a structure. Each session will begin with a short exercise for the purpose of stirring up one’s creative juices. This will be followed by time for members to work in whatever direction they feel led to go. Further, the participants will be guided in seeing how their practice of art can help them develop a more contemplative stance in their lives.

The guild is open to all regardless of art expertise. “The only criteria is that you must be comfortable working independently for a portion of each session,” Sister Rosemary said.
