When you create a piece of art, you may experience a hint of what God likely felt, and in doing so, you also may be able to understand God’s love even more. Experiencing the art of others stretches our imagination, impassions our spirits, and connects us with the world around us.
Despite God's beautiful example, many people don’t incorporate the arts in their spiritual lives. We hope to be a part of changing that.
