Join Roger Speer, freelance illustrator, art educator, and minister for eight sessions of artistic exploration inspired by your life and the events of Holy Week.

Daily (beginning Palm Sunday, March 28th) you’ll receive an email with a video lesson that guides you through the process of developing your unique artistic expression, responding to scripture and our diocesan Rule of Life, Vision Statement, and Mission Statement.

Each evening at 7:00 p.m. (beginning Monday, March 29th) join Roger and others in a Zoom chat to share your art and your experience.

Sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Central New York and the Church of the Good Shepherd (Augusta, GA), this weeklong experience is free to you.

You’ll receive your first email on the morning of Palm Sunday. Each email will contain a video with scripture, reflection, tools, and exercises to move you through your journey to the empty tomb. You’ll also have the opportunity to join a Zoom call every evening (beginning Monday, March 29th) to support and critique each other’s work.
