Invite the artist in you to awaken and flourish during your time at Pendle Hill. Explorations in the arts – with clay, paint, handmade paper, and more – provide a deepening experience for the soul which is beyond words.
Many students, including those with little experience with visual art, find the studio to be a “home” where they can reconnect with God and claim their own creative path. The studio space and supplies are available to everyone at Pendle Hill, and spontaneous and collaborative art projects are welcome. Simple, contemplative art activities and organized craft projects are provided. Some students come with ideas for pursuing self-directed art projects in their free time. Termlong art courses offer opportunities for in-depth exploration within a supportive group environment. Class assignments are designed not only to build particular skills but also to promote spiritual growth and self-reflection.
The gallery space in the Barn holds changing exhibits featuring artists whose work often reflects themes of spirituality, peace, and justice.
