Welcome to Awaken Art
A Creative Retreat bringing you closer to the Lord.
Awaken the creativity inside you through intimacy with God.
Awaken Art is a 2 hour online retreat designed to focus on the Lord in a creative way by partnering with His Holy Spirit. This is done over a live stream via YouTube and you'll be able to chat with the host should you have any questions during the creative time. Each evening starts with a time of relaxation, reflection time with scripture, dreaming with the Lord, then creating an art piece as an expression of spending time in God's presence.
Through this process, you learn skills of relaxing in God's presence, communicating with God's Holy Spirit, and developing your own creative talents in a safe and accepting environment. Essentially you are developing your skills to become a Prophetic Artist using multi-media.
Our God, Who is the Creator of everything, made us in His own spiritual likeness. So because God is THE Creator, and very creative, then we are too! You were created to also create! God's definition of creativity is not about an end result; it is the process and the journey of actually creating. Creativity is in our DNA. NO ARTISTIC ABILITY NEEDED - just a desire to create and to spend time with the Lord in the presence.
Every Awaken Art event is unique.
We hold Awaken Art events once per month and each month is a different theme. We begin with scripture and you'll be guided through a process of using your imagination and connecting with Jesus through the Holy Spirit. It's a very peaceful time in the Lord's presence and then creating an art piece as an expression of reflecting on Him.
