What To Expect

You will be using your chosen medium to capture the surrounding area and interact with local people as you sketch, paint or photograph.

You will receive some training in starting conversations with strangers and introducing them to Jesus. You will also be given input in how to use your art as a means to share the Gospel, and what it means to be an artist who wants to make a difference.

There could be the opportunity to use your skills to bless people in the town by drawing or painting their portrait, home or pet depending on your chosen medium or skill.

Plein Air is an ideal way of connecting with people as they go about their business. The week will culminate with an exhibition evening where you will have the opportunity to sell the work you have produced.

You will have lots of fun and visit some local landmarks that are inspirational for the visual artist.
