Course Description:

The psalmist digs deep into the human soul in forms of praise, entreaty, anger and fear.  The psalms reveal what might be called a personal blog to the divine in today’s culture.

Depths of pain and praise are plumbed by a myriad of voices. Spend the day visualizing through paint and paper, cut outs and drawing, your response to the personal voices found in the psalms.

Expressive art can deepen our understanding of texts and lead to the place where words alone are incomplete. Previous art experience is NOT necessary.

Led by Janet Read ,a practicing visual artist, musician and sometime poet and member of St Clement’s Church. She studied philosophy, English and medieval studies at the University of Toronto. She has a degree in Education and an MA in aesthetic philosophy from the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto.
