SESSION 1 WORKSHOPS:

The Prophetic Imagination: Voices in the Wilderness w/ Marie Teihard
This lecture will explore the call of artists as prophets who are charged with a responsibility to speak into culture and usher in the transformation of hearts.

Keys to Thriving as Artists and Creative Beings w/ Luke & Rosemary Skaggs
Proverbs 4:23 says, "Keep your heart with all vigilance, for everything you do flows from it." This class will discuss how we can have thriving hearts as artists and creative beings so that with a foundation in our true identity our creativity can overflow to others. We will explore topics such as how to love what we create and how to create confidently, free from pressure, insecurity and comparison.

Calligraphy and the Power of the Written Word w/ Jessica Gatlyn
Explore the art of Calligraphy and letterforms through method, experimental play and technique with pen and brush. Dive into the power of the written word as a form of release, healing, discovery and play. All who attend will receive a pen, a set of nibs and a small bottle of ink to take home.

UNCAP w/ Suzy Wills Yaraei
   In this class, students will take a simple yet profound look into the everyday things that cap our creative flow and learn to release the power of keeping a clean and open heart.

SESSION 2 WORKSHOPS:

Discerning God’s Will in a World of Broken Dreams: How to Find Happiness and Human Flourishing in a Capricious World w/ Ken Wytsma
In this workshop, Ken Wytsma explores the tension of human striving versus submission to God’s will in our understanding of the good life.

Finding Jesus In The Lyric of Our Lives: (Songwriting) w/Andrew Ehrenzeller
In this class, singer/songwriter Andrew Ehrenzeller will share about overcoming the seduction of dishonesty and how the enduring songs of our lives are composed when we're honest with ourselves and God in our creativity.

The Language of Identity: Your Art inside the Art w/ Brandon Willett
Finding your distinct voice can be a daunting task. More often than not it feels more akin to a wrestling match than an elegant and noble journey across oceans. How can we operate in full sincerity and unapologetic authenticity?

Creativity in the pursuit of Justice w/ Jason Fileta
What is the role of art and creativity in pursuing justice? In Scripture we see God's creativity through the miraculous, through mystery, and often as a source of freedom and hope for the oppressed. Jesus taught and inspired people through metaphor. In modern times art and creativity have played a significant role in socials movements from the Civil Rights movement in the U.S. to the struggle to end apartheid in South Africa. In this workshop we'll explore the role of creativity and art in inspiring justice and bringing hope to a broken world.
