Let Us Make with Sheila Atchley
An artful, playful exploration of creation, purpose, theology and story, as we rediscover them all in Genesis chapter 1 of the bible.
This course is built around each of the “6 days of creation”. You will take one day at a time to make art based on “let there be light” (day 1)…firmament art (day 2)…botanical art (day 3)…moon art (day 4)…birds and fish (day 5)…culminating in day 6, where you create art celebrating a land mammal and, most of all, human beings who are Imago Dei: made in the image of God.
Even though we are taking our text from the bible, you do not have to be a Christian to take this course. This class is for anyone who loves nature, art, and spirituality. Sheila Atchley with lead you with techniques such as abstract flow art, mixed media, collage, botanical art, and expressive portraiture. You will try your hand at painting things that fly and things that swim, and you will “paint with light” at least two or three different ways.
If you’ve ever wished you could have an excuse to make art and spend more time outdoors; if you’ve ever wished you could gain some perspective on your own story, and come to know for sure why you are alive, this is the course for you.
All these things will be explored through art and scripture, in a safe, nonjudgemental, even playful atmosphere. Join us in “Let Us Make”.
