September 9 | Thursday 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.CDT
facilitated by Rev. Mary Donovan
Early autumn gives us so much beauty and cause for praising God – inspiration is everywhere! Celebrate with us God’s glorious creation of nature through the medium of watercolor painting. We will focus on learning three techniques: paint scattering, palette knife, and salt sprinkling. All materials are covered by the retreat cost and will be provided for you. No prior painting experience is necessary.
Please register by September 8. After submitting your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available, and if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at email@example.com. We strongly encourage you to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts, to ensure the delivery of important information relevant to your retreat, which you can expect to receive in the week prior. We look forward to welcoming you to Sophia!
