FAMILY EVENT “DRAWING GOD” Workshop Friday, November 6, 2021 10:00AM – Noon
Inspired by the “Drawing God” children’s book, by Karen Kiefer, children and an adult companion are invited to be part of a morning workshop during which they are encouraged to create their images of God.
The little girl in the story, Emma, is inspired to draw like Picasso after she takes a field trip to the art museum. Emma wants to draw something spectacular and decides to draw GOD. Unfortunately, her classmates can’t see GOD in any of her drawings. Emma keeps trying, drawing different things, but her friends still don’t see God, until they find inspiration in her contagious faith.
Children (and an adult companion) are invited to spend a morning at the Monastery drawing and sharing their images of God. All materials (crayons, colored pencils and markers), along with a light snack, will be provided.
There is no fee for this event.
