. . . using art as a gateway to healing, wholeness and meditation.
The five components of Prayercraft are
Inspiration – Getting the idea
We are all created in the image and likeness of God who is the
Great Creator of all that is – seen and unseen.
When we tap into the Divine creative energy,
we can become vessels for the work that is waiting to be
brought to life.
Implementation – Getting to work
We can make the art alone or in a group.
Being alone allows us to connect to rhythm and
flow of the process. We can pray as we become
absorbed in the work. Making art with others
allows us to appreciate different ways of
approaching and executing the work.
Because we have time to listen and respond,
our conversations can become times of
sharing wisdom and mutual support.
Finishing – Releasing the art
As we come to the end of the process we
give the piece of art wings to fly out
into the world. How it is interpreted by
others is not in our control.
They may see something in the art that
helps them in unexpected ways.
Tithing our craft – Giving back
This step involves a decision to donate
a portion of the work of our hands to a
worthy cause or to someone who needs
help or encouragement.
Teaching - Passing down our expertise.
Helping others to learn the skills
we have mastered keeps the art alive.
