First Congregational Church
Live in-person from the stunning Ripley Chapel at FCCW. Jane Ring Frank, certified SoulCollage® facilitator, will offer an introduction workshop to this deep, spiritual practice.
SoulCollage® is a collage process for accessing your intuitive wisdom. Even though this is an “art project,” it is accessible, and anyone can do it. You don’t need to be an artist to create beautiful SoulCollage® cards with rich meaning and messages for your life. The practice was created by Seena Frost, M. Div., M.A in the late 1990’s as she was working with clients in California.
All materials and direction are included to inspire your creative journey. Using scissors, glue, images, photos, and 8” X 5” mat board, you will be led on a path of self-discovery. We are all born creative and spend our adult lives separating ourselves from that natural spark. No art experience necessary.
“The image is a midwife that allows inner experience to be birthed into conscious expression.” (Matthew Fox)

Griffin Museum of Photography
Creativity takes many forms. Performing artists use their bodies, writers elucidate thoughts and put them on paper, and visual artists take their tools to a blank canvas or light sensitive paper. Artists, passionate about their craft are compelled to create exposing the invisible and engaging us in thought, emotion and narrative. We celebrate the tools artists surround themselves with as we create a studio visit through the works of two photographic artists, Chris Rauschenberg and Meggan Gould.
Join us at the Griffin for an opening reception for the two artists highlighted in Leaving Their Mark. Saturday November 4th from 6 to 8pm
