“Pour It on a Page”

Art Journaling Class with Elizabeth Johnson | Room 209 | 5:45-7:30 pm

During this 6-week class, participants will gather together at the church as artist Elizabeth Johnson provides artistic ways to settle your minds, listen for God’s voice, and pour your thoughts and prayers onto the page through visual journaling. Utilizing the same techniques found in Elizabeth’s book The Lion Whispers Hope, you will be invited to process your own personal spiritual story in your journal.

Elizabeth, an artist herself, lives at the intersection of imagery, words, creativity, and spirituality to lead this group through an art journal and workshop, incorporating a bit of her own story and some guided artistic training.
