Art Challenges

Faith, Beauty, and the Imagination

Art Challenges are intended to be experienced at any level of engagement, whether you just read them and spend a few moments of reflection or are inspired to new creations and are able to make the trip to share with the creative community at the end. There is no obligation, really, just invitation. Art Challenges take place in the spring and the fall.

Upcoming Art Challenge:

Jesus engaged images and metaphors from nature to help us understand a life of faith. The psalms are abundant in references to nature. In the upcoming art challenge, we invite you to journey into spring with this exploration of nature in scriptures. Then respond with your own creation. You can use any medium you want: song, poetry, visual art, photography, video, etc. (if it involves performance, the length would be 10-15 minutes).

Beginning Sunday, March 11 we will send weekly emails sharing scriptural and artistic inspiration. Then, on April 15 there will be a gathering after Mass at the Monastery for people to share their works and inspirations. If you can’t make it to the Monastery, you may wish to engage in this project with a group in your community. To learn more and accept the challenge email creative@stgertrudes.org or call 208-962-5065.
