Personal and Liturgical Creative Expression
The Art and Soul Retreat is a liturgical arts retreat designed to provide opportunities to connect with the Divine through many forms of artistic expression. Within a spiritual community of love and creativity, we strive to renew our minds and inspire our hands and voices in ordinary and extraordinary ways.
Classes are led by some of the finest artisans in their fields. Kits and supplies are provided by instructors at an additional cost. Participants must register for a morning class track, leaving afternoons open to participate in the music program, work on personal projects or enjoy the outdoors.
