Christian Artists & Writers Retreats And Conferences

Create your own banner at mybannermaker.com!

Both secular as well as Christian artists and writers have for many years utilized retreats and conferences as a way to get the creative juices flowing. This approach seems like a romantic notion from a Victorian novel, but there are many such places for artists and writers and they are more popular than ever. That is why you see more and more Christian artists and writers retreats. By leaving the stress, cares, and worries of the world behind these artists and writers find the right soil for creativity to spring forth.

Locations in remote areas are popular settings for these kinds of retreats. The author afflicted with writer's block can get away from everything and find his thoughts and pen flowing again. The artist may also get new inspiration from a different setting. Musicians often go on these retreats to get new ideas and also to jam with other musicians. It is amazing how a different setting that relaxes you and helps you clear your mind can open your mind to new and creative thoughts that you can work with.

Artists and writers retreats and conferences do not have to be far from a city and some are not specifically designed for Christians although Christians can make use of the facilities of course. The Yaddo, in Saratoga Springs, New York is a stone's throw from downtown, but it seems a million miles away. The gardens are open to the public and they are a beautiful setting to enjoy God's creation. You cannot get near the mansion though. It is strictly out of bounds to provide the residents with the privacy they need. Just walking the grounds you will discover the quietness and peacefulness that is there.

While many people prefer a solitary working experience, group retreats and conferences for christian writers and artists are also popular. You can be with people in your chosen field of art and bounce ideas off each other. There are also retreats for crafts, photography, woodworking, and drama. Quilting retreats are also popular with some ladies who enjoy this kind of craft as a hobby.

Teaching retreats for christian writers and Christian artist colonies offer another great experience for beginners and established artists. Christian writer's workshops are often weekend retreats. Beginning writers get to learn from established writers and established writers may get new ideas. Whether art is your profession or just an interest, check into some of these retreats. You're sure to enjoy them.
