“Art-making is incarnational, engaging us with the stuff of life. . . We craft matter or words to reveal spirit, and in the act of crafting something more is rendered from the materials with which we began. It is an act of revelation.” Christine Valters Paintner

This spring, explore artmaking and spiritual practice on the grounds of Washington National Cathedral. Each week combines a spiritual discipline (silence, observing nature, intentional movement, meditation) with art making activities. Using a variety of materials, craft images as a response to your surroundings and senses. Each session engages a different discipline and location within the Cathedral so come to one or all of the programs. No previous experience with art or contemplation is necessary, only curiosity and a willingness to engage the creative process.
