Suggested Donation:

September 4 – September 7, 2018

A three-day workshop that includes connecting with nature and our sketchbooks, looking for inspirations from nature and spirit. As we explore the beautiful grounds at Holy Cross Monastery, we’ll also be drawing upon our connections with nature.  Discover and experience ways to see, notice and observe nature with quiet, contemplative exercises. Explore a variety of techniques from line and pattern drawing to pencil, pen and watercolor sketching.  Includes some photography, prompts, journaling and surprises with images and words. Time for quiet connection with the sacred with outdoor and indoor sessions, sharing circles and time for quiet meditation and contemplation will also be included.

A suggested supply list to bring will be included upon registration.
