"Living Like Francis Today" Arts Retreat with Jo Myers-Walker, Artist

January 5, 2017


Journal Painting and Reflection on "Living Like Francis Today" 

Saturday, February 25th


Come out of the cold and somber winter landscape and into a day of reflection, beautiful watercolors and fun! Emmaus House Spirituality Center is sponsoring a one day arts retreat based on 

St. Francis of Assisi and his attention to Simple Living, Loving and Care of our Earth. 


As we paint, draw or write the Inward Journey, we discover contemplative meditation and release. Because watercolor is gentle and unburdened, we enjoy beauty, freedom and playful surprises, which invites us to discover our unique gifts and talents, as we begin with awe, wonder and gratitude. You do not need to be a trained artist to participate fully in this contemplative experience.


The workshop will be held on Saturday, February 25th, from 9 to 3 at Emmaus House, Terrace Place Annex, 2600 Grand, Suite 120, in Des Moines. The cost is $75, which includes your cloth covered journal, Marci Blum's Living like Francis Today, all art supplies and lunch. Register online  by February 20th. Enrollment is limited.
