The vision for the Arts Collective is to express the beauty of God’s creation and/or the wonder of His love, as well as to further encourage art (in any form, for example: music, spoken word, sculpture, paintings, dance, quilting, glass work, etc.) to be created and displayed, whether it be in open studio sessions, workshops, classes, etc. The Arts Collective currently facilitates a tri-annual art rotation, occastional creative worship services, workshops, classes and other opportunities to worship, encourage one another and practice our creativity.
Open Studio Sessions are one way we provide free space to create, meet, and chat with other artists of all mediums. The Open Studio is accessible to everyone. It is intended to foster creativity and encourage experimentation in an atmosphere of exchange, conversation, encouragement, and freedom of expression.
We’ve also had fantastic classes in exploring creativity; from meditating on His word as a basis of our creativity and how God can speak to us through our creativity.
In the future, we’d like to provide more workshops and classes on the many different forms of creative arts.
