What better way to get a feel for Sydney Artists Retreat than to hear from our past participants, providing some reflections on their experiences during their time away. At the end of retreat, we ask the group a few questions for some feedback, and we will be featuring some of the responses in several parts in the lead up to SAR 2019.
Part 1 : How has this retreat been of benefit to your art making / creative practice?
" Restoring "
" Gave me time to reflect & get inspired from others "
" Fantastic hearing other artists ideas and thoughts on art and art making. "
" Wonderful to be encouraged. "
" Helped me to hand it over to God "
" Brought life to what I thought was dead. Permission to find my own expression. "
" Period of concentration, retreat and sharing. Inspired by artists who heed God’s word
refreshed me to go home and work hard - space to play and be inspired by others. Good fuel to keep going in the everyday. "
" Connecting my art to God as a valuable process to connect to God rather than a product to be offered to him or point specifically to Christ. "
" Talking to and sharing with other creative peoples. I just love hanging out with fun, loving open people. It's really inspiring... "
" Inspired me to step out and explore the creativity within me. "
" Appreciated being a part of a group of likeminded people who understood the creative process. Chance to be refreshed and inspired. "
