God gave us the gift of creativity, and when we use it, we are celebrating the blessing of being free. Creative pursuits can help us let go of expectations, quiet our minds, and allow us to view the world just a little bit differently. Doing art, even if you’re not someone that normally paints or draws, is one way to unlock quiet, Sabbath time with God. It’s also a good way to improve your relationship with him. Painting helps us relax and listen to what God is telling us in our hearts and through our creative work.
In this course I will show you how I use painting, and specifically mixed media techniques, to help me feel closer to God. Mixed media allows us to get messy, change things up, and paint in a way that explores freedom. Best of all, you don’t need artistic skills to do this course! We’re layering paint and papers and through every project we have the opportunity to connect with God in an unexpected way.
