Star Arts: Exercise Your Creative Energy

June 16, 2018 to June 23, 2018

Star Island is a creative, spiritual place to call home. At Star Arts we nurture this spirit and provide activities for professional artists and amateurs alike. All experience levels are welcome. Sometimes we expand on current talents; sometimes we take risks on new frontiers.
Arts conferees are invited to spend their mornings in the workshop of their choice: music, writing, drama, photography, painting, or dance. Other activities include poetry readings, choirs and music jams, story-telling, art and talent shows, Qi Gong, yoga, quiet contemplation, morning chapel, afternoon skill-sharing, and other spontaneous adventures to nourish creativity, curiosity and spiritual reflection. Find your muse – or simply sit on the rocks and read. Do everything – or do nothing.
Star Arts is a safe, affirming, community. Amidst laughter, beauty, sea gulls, and spectacular sunsets, we nurture interpersonal connections and encourage each other in personal reflection. Always, we come away refreshed, alive, and eager to come back. Please join us, and discover the many ways you can feed your spirit. For adults 18 and older.
