Third session of Art and Soul Creation Guild set

The Sisters of Providence have created the Art and Soul Creation Guild and the first event for the guild is scheduled for 9:30 a.m., on Oct. 2.

All art lovers who have a desire to re-charge their creativity are invited to join the Art and Soul Creation Guild, sponsored by the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana.

The guild began meeting in October and the third session is scheduled for Dec. 4 and repeated on Dec. 5. New members may join at any time. The topic for November is “Doodling and Tangling.”

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 will facilitate each event. She notes that usually such groups simply gather for mutual support and members work on their own projects in their chosen medium. These 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.

All sessions are offered twice, on the first Wednesday of the month, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., and repeated on the first Thursday of the month, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. However, the sessions in January will take place on the second Wednesday and Thursday.

To attend any or all of the sessions, one must become a guild member. To become a guild member, one can call Jeanne Frost at 812-535-2952, or email jfrost@spsmw.org, or click here.

An annual membership fee to the Art and Soul Creation Guild is $30 and each session that a member attends will cost $5.

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.
