Advent Art Night
November 17, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
You are invited to join us for an ALL AGES event as we reflect on the upcoming Advent season and create artwork to bless the John Knox community during the Advent & Christmas seasons! (No dinner will be provided this year.)
We are expanding our art-making options beyond painting to also include poetry and decorating! Here’s what you can expect from each of the options:
Painting: Reflecting on our Advent theme “Close to Home” and Isaiah 9:2-7, paint whatever image comes to mind for you using the supplies provided (canvas & acrylic paint).
Poetry: Reflecting on one of the Advent Scripture texts, you will be guided through a time of reflection and community poetry making. Even if you don’t consider yourself a poet or writer, this exercise will help us create together poetry that may be used during worship services during Advent/Christmas. (Led by Rachel Morris).
Decorating: Come help prepare our worship space for the Advent & Christmas seasons! Guided by Nathan Rodda and Susan Basher, you can help decorate the Sanctuary and bless the entire congregation of John Knox.
Not able to join us in person for Advent Art Night? You can still participate in painting by picking up an at-home kit and returning your artwork to John Knox by Sunday, November 21. Select painting at home during registration.
