Contemporary Illuminated Manuscripts
Explore artmaking as spiritual practice and create your own illuminated manuscript page. Meeting online, we will begin with guided meditation and view images of medieval and contemporary manuscripts for inspiration. Using simple materials (paper, pens, markers, magazine images—whatever you have on hand) we will combine prayers, poems or text with color, borders, drawings and collaged elements to create personally meaningful images. No previous experience with art or contemplation is necessary, only curiosity and a willingness to engage the creative process.
