Art Devotional is new type of bible journaling that combines art and bible reflection in a unique form of devotional expression. The event has a perfect balance between fun, fellowship and learning how to express God’s word with color, forms and textures. We will journal specific Scriptures selected by pastors from San Diego Harvest Conference. No artistic experience necessary. We will take advantage of easy to use supplies like stamps, stencils, stickers and so on. It is frustration free!

Our retreat will start with welcome hors d'oeuvre and beverage followed by an evening worship, potluck dinner (please bring a dish to share) and a devotional workshop class. Participants are welcome to journal for as long as they would like creating devotional margins or pages, cards and post-cards, scrapbook pages, mixed-media or whatever type of art expression they feel like making.

On Saturday we will start the day with breakfast and a morning worship that will give us material for the day activities. There will be four main workshops showing different types of art techniques appropriate to use on bibles and journals. Several mediums will be presented, how to’s, demos and hands on activities. A lunch break between workshops will give an opportunity to chill and reflect. At the end of the day, after dinner and evening worship we will offer a make ‘n take and participants will have free time to practice everything they’ve learned during the day for as long as they wish.

Sunday will start with breakfast and a morning and final worship followed by review workshop to take questions about any technique, mediums and master bible journaling. After lunch we will offer one more make ‘n take, one demo and final gathering when everyone is welcome to share their thoughts, emotions and experience with the retreat, and suggest themes for future retreats.
