April Workshop

April 27 Workshop Brings Nature’s Beauty into Focus

In keeping with our sisters’ commitment to both artistic creativity and caring for the Earth, we will be hosting an art and spiritual workshop that focuses on the beauty of Creation. “The Nature of Our Lives” will be presented Saturday, April 27, from 9:00 – 11:15 a.m. in St. Joseph Hall.

Our presenter, historian and artist Juliet Hills, has planned this contemplative morning so that “art, spirituality, literature, and history will deepen our sense of belonging to this fragile planet.” She will draw on varied inspirational writings including Pope Francis’ environmental encyclical, Laudato Si’, and the works of contemporary author Annie Dillard, John Muir (known as “the father of the National Parks”), poet Margaret Fuller, and others.

Workshop attendees will reflect on ways to bring their spirituality in line with a commitment to be caretakers of the natural world, starting in their own neighborhoods. Participants then will have a chance to create a piece of watercolor art using water-soluble pencils. All are encouraged to bring along pictures or photos from their personal collections that might help inspire their creativity.

The workshop fee is only $20, and includes all art supplies. Registration closes Thursday, April 18, so reserve your place today by calling 414-385-5272 or email doloughlin@sssf.org.
