Art Retreat

April 9 2021 | 6:00 pm - April 11 2021 | 3:00 pm

***Coronavirus update: We are planning to run this event in Keswick, but this will obviously depend on government guidelines at the time of the event.

This will be a weekend exploring what the Bible says about working in Art today. It will be a practical weekend on how to survive and thrive as a Christian and an artist. There will be plenty of time to meet other Christians in the arts, to enjoy the beautiful Lakes and make some art while you’re here!

The retreat will feature teaching slots in the mornings and afternoon workshops will be held for participants to draw out and about around Keswick.

The teaching sessions will be an opportunity to hear a biblical overview of the arts and creativity taking a creation, fall, redemption and new creation format over a number of sessions. Each session will be rooted in scripture and illustrated with examples from art.

There will be optional art workshops and time to make work in response to the stunning Keswick landscape and situation.
