Red Thread Retreat Registration Now Open


An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break. Chinese proverb

GRACE NOTES with Lesley Riley
A Red Thread Retreat – October 16-2, 2014

GraceNotesI do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us. (Anne Lamott)


Anne Lamott’s words sum up two things that are near and dear to my heart – the concept of grace and the effect that a Red Thread Retreat has on us all.


Grace has been defined as the outward expression of the inward harmony of the soul. (William Hazlitt)


To me, grace in art is the result of the nuances and little pieces of the self that we put into our work. In this class we will use quotes as a jumping off point to uncover grace and improve our skills as artists. We will use quotes about art, quotes by artists and quotes about the act of creating to arrive at our own set of grace notes.
