Beyond Canvas: Online course interest expression

Beyond Canvas: Art, Spirituality and Healing Exploring Course

This one- or two-day course offers an engaging and dynamic exploration that transcends the conventional boundaries of art and spirituality. Throughout this practice-based course, participants will dissect the intricate relationship between theology, imagination, and artistry, unveiling the deeper layers of meaning within various art forms, including film and moving images.

The course can be delivered online or in person in your congregation/community or in collaboration with an external organiser.

What You'll Discover
Intersections of Art and Spirituality:
  • Explore the fusion of theology and artistry, discovering how they intertwine in personal prayer, communal worship, and self-reflective techniques.

  • Examine key art forms and their significant contribution to the ongoing process of creation, restoration, and contemplation of spiritual concepts.

Critical Examination of Artworks:
  • Develop a keen eye for critical analysis, dissecting artworks using precise terminology and contextualising them within the realm of continuous creation.

  • Apply theological reflections to art practice, interpreting its significance in personal spirituality, communal worship, and self-reflection.

Beyond the Canvas

Because of its practical element, this course transcends conventional discussions, setting art practice within the evolving field of the theology of creation. Furthermore, it sheds light on the connection between artistic expression and personal vulnerability in self-reflective art practices.
