First Annual IMAGO Art Retreat August 20-21
Sign-up is now open!
When: Saturday 8/20 @ 10am to Sunday 8/21 @ noon.
Topic: Criticism: A Knife that Wounds Can Also Sharpen
In this artists’ retreat, we will take an honest look at how nonconstructive criticism can wound and damage artists and cause blocks in the creative process. Then, having addressed these “arrows,” we will go on to explore how to give — and receive — criticism in a way that is healthy and helpful. To finish, we will consider what we can learn about our own creative processes by looking to God himself, the ultimate Creator, whose image we bear.
