Open Studio

The Open Studio is a creative prayer ministry where people listen and reflect on scripture and oftentimes respond through art, writing or other creative expressions.

Sessions are held on a themed basis for Lent, Easter, Ordinary Time and Advent.

A variety of art and writing materials are provided such as paints, clay, fabric, wool, stencils, manuscript pens, canvases, twigs, beads, and lots more to be used in any way desired. Prayer art expressions are unique; some participants may doodle, journal, stencil, paint, collage, sew, knit, create sculptures from clay, while others may prefer to pen down their reflections instead or just pray and enjoy their time with God. 

 

Freedom of expression is celebrated and the creative process is equally if not more important than the end product. We treasure the fruit of the creative prayer experience, as a highly personal and meaningful reminder of our encounter with the Lord, rather than an art piece for display.
