Art is prayer. Prayer is art. At ACL, we help you experience creative art making as a contemplative and prayful practice by being intentional with our environment, approach and curriculum. In our classes, you will learn how to slow down and look more closely, lessening the power of built in filters, and improving your ability to discern deeper spiritual meaning. You will discover and explore your inherent creativity, ultimately emerging fearless and grounded with a greater appreciation of your own value and gifts.
“I have learned that what I have not drawn I have never really seen, and that when I start drawing an ordinary thing I realize how extraordinary it is, sheer miracle: the branching of a tree, the structure of a dandelions’s seed puff. I discover that there is no ordinary thing. All that is, is worthy of being seen, of being drawn.”
– Zen of Seeing: Seeing/Drawing
as Meditation, Frederick Franck
