Discover your creative spirit!

The Arts & Hearts Ministry encourages all ages of our congregation and community to connect with the Creator and one another through artistic activities, and to deepen spirituality by using our individual gifts to create in a variety of ways.

Our studio in the Wellness and Community Center offers excellent space and light for a range of classes that require only interested participants, no matter your experience level.
From drawing and painting to Zentangles® and pottery-making, enthusiastic and experienced instructors from Knollwood’s congregation will help children and adults find a way to develop an artistic interest or just explore a long-standing curiosity about creating art.
Opening hearts through the arts is a growing ministry among our congregation, neighbors, and community partners. You’ll find here a list of upcoming classes, along with registration forms and instructions.

We are offering 3 classes designed to introduce a small group to the basics of making a clay pot on a potter’s wheel.  Drawing on the imagery of Jeremiah’s trip to the Potter’s House, we will describe the work of God crafting us as useful vessels, discussing themes of renewal, listening, and transformation.  The classes will combine play and prayer, dirty hands and open hearts.  No previous studio experience is needed but participants should attend all 3 sessions.  Everyone will begin to learn using the wheel, make some simple clay pieces, and fire their creations.
