Join artist Jen Norton for a Lenten reflection on Jesus’ extravagant display of transforming love and mercy. Using Jen’s book, Surrender All (Ave Maria Press) as a starting point, Jen and Mary DuQuaine, Director of Mercy Center Burlingame, will guide our walk together as we meditate on the Stations of the Cross. Then, Jen will guide you in creating a unique piece of expressive art that examines your own heart, finding clues to your mission call.
The workshop will begin on Ash Wednesday with a live opening session on Zoom. We will continue for the 6 weeks of Lent by viewing pre-recorded art classes and reflections that you can access any time. Small groups will also be offered at various times throughout Lent so that we can share our experiences of the journey. If you are unable to attend the first session live you will be able to view it recorded at a later time.
The art project is open to all levels of creativity. No experience necessary! Art instruction will be given in acrylic paint and collage, but attendees are free to use other creative mediums of choice, like fabric, clay, found objects, etc.
In addition to your ticket you will need to purchase art materials. Please see link below for art supply suggestions. Jen also created a video to offer art supply suggestions which you can view on MercyIs.org.
Note: It is not necessary to participate in the art project, you are welcome to enjoy the Lenten reflections and view the projects of others as we go along.
The list offers suggestions at 3 levels: professional (Gallery Artist), moderate (Art Enthusiast), and budget (Crafter).
