The Divine Image ~ “Created to Create”

Discover your creative outlets, share ideas, and enjoy an artistic work space in an open, drop-in environment.  Divine Image is a venue for us to celebrate the creative process that is gifted to us by our own creator.

Participants in painting, bead work, macramé, drawing and tile mosaic are enjoying the atmosphere of creating and networking, and there is room for more.

Divine Image is open 9AM-12PM on the fourth Saturday of the month in the PPMCC social hall at no cost.  Participants are responsible for their materials and set-up/clean-up.

Please see Matthew Keist for more information or just drop in!
