Art & Craft Mini-Retreat

April 21 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Arts & Crafts Mini-Retreat for Adults #2

Saturday, 21 April 2018

9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall

Artists and crafters are invited to our second St. Francis Church Arts & Crafts Mini-Retreat for Adults! Our first retreat in March was a wonderful time of creativity and fellowship. We got to see some of Marvin Lykins’ gorgeous icons and watched him work on his latest painting. Some of us colored, others painted rocks (yes, that’s a thing), or crocheted. We had a great time visiting and being unhurried for a few hours. Being creative can make you lose all sense of time, and that’s a good thing!

Come join us on April 21st and discover for yourself how inspiring it is to create in community. Please bring a quiet craft project (no metal tooling or noisy woodworking, sorry) and all necessary materials. No craft materials or project suggestions will be offered. However, we will have a small amount of art supplies available, like coloring pages for adults, felt markers, colored pencils, origami paper, and much more. (Thank you for all your generous donations!)

If you are interested in iconography, Marvin Lykins will again be working on his latest icon (St. Valentine) and is available to answer your questions about the process of painting icons.

In order to keep things quiet enough to work while we visit with each other, we ask that children stay at home. There will be no childcare available. Pre-teens accompanied by an adult or teens are welcome as long as they are working on creative projects.

Those who are not painters or crafters but would like to spend the morning in quiet rest, reading, or journaling are also welcome; we will have a couple of designated quiet rooms.

No refreshments provided, but we will have hot water for tea and a Keurig coffee maker. Please bring your own Keurig coffee pods and tea bags.

No registration is required, just drop in any time between 9:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 21st. Bring a friend or neighbor!
