Arti Gras! Celebration of Art and Spirit
Engaging in any creative activity enriches life, and yet most people are intimidated by the very words “art” and “creativity.” Arti Gras! provides a safe, judgment-free space to explore creativity and spirituality. We focus on the creative process rather than on the finished product.
This event offers a wide range of possibilities for exploring the creative elements of the life journey, featuring a menu of mini-workshops that include art journaling, gentle dance/movement, written word and poetry, simple sculpting, paint, mixed media, and collage. This is a grassroots, hands-on experience open to all. Children under the age of 16 are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Arti Gras! is held the Saturday before Ash Wednesday.
