This December, visual artist Vonda Drees invites us to contemplate the prophesies of Isaiah through artistic practices. Through meditation, prayer and creative journaling geared toward all ability levels, we will learn to see art as meditation, intercession, devotion and inspiration. Everyone can do this!
Vonda Drees, a creative contemplative, served as the artist-in-residence for Women of the ELCA’s Tenth Triennial Gathering. She and her husband, Jim, are the executive directors of the Grünewald Guild in the Cascade Mountains of Washington. The Guild is a sanctuary for the exploration of art, faith and community. Vonda uses her artistic gifts and passion in the Guild’s retreats, workshops and classes.
