Art & Soul Workshop: Process Painting as a Path to the
Holy. Saturday, February 26, , at Artist’s Crossing Hamden. Materials provided. Facilitated by Studio Artist and Spiritual Director,
Harriet Carew, M.Div., this workshop will offer an opportunity to explore
"process painting" as a way to make soul art. The painting
method focuses on an intuitive, non-verbal level by inviting images to emerge
from our unconscious. Through movement and music, participants will be led to
the right side of the brain. Here, using color, line and form, paintings
will be created in oil pastels that become the locus of individual meditation.
The playfulness and integration of new aspects of ourselves can lead to sacred
and authentic dialogue with the God of our understanding as well as stretch our
capacity to companion others. Wear comfortable clothes. Harriet Carew was
trained as a Spiritual Director at the Weston Jesuit School of Theology and is
a former art teacher. Artist's Crossing is located next to Grace and St.
