The Art of Looking: Contemplative Drawing

This 4 week drawing course, open to all levels, is designed to encourage the Art of Looking, the practice of paying close attention to what is in front of us. Once a week you will receive and e-mail with the week’s spiritual art practice, and every day you will receive a new meditation to guide you in your practice of loving God by disregarding every other thought and really seeing, as a practical way of opening ourselves to a deeper level of contemplation. The art of looking helps to shed the filter of preconceptions in order to begin to see with fresh eyes the divinity of creation and creating. The more we look, the more we see. Our instructions? Simple: draw what you see; don't draw what you don’t see.
