silent retreats

Silence is difficult to come by in a busy world, and many of us don’t know what to do with ourselves during times of silence.

We offer three different silent retreat experiences. Whichever…

paintbrush

From the very beginning of our existence, God gently held us and looked into our souls. Delighted with His creation, He took a paintbrush to accompany us as He wished to paint the moments of our lives: moments of grace, moments of challenge, moments of peace and moments of stress.

Our special event to open our 2017-2018 retreat season is Nzinga’s Daughters’ Underground Railroad Performance.

However, too often the story of the Underground Railroad is told from a white perspective. This program invites the audience to experience the creativity, ingenuity, and perseverance employed by African-American slaves in their efforts to shepherd runaway slaves to safety.  Because slaves were…

monoprints

Celebrate the trees at OLC by creating one-of-a-kind double sided monoprints. Many artists have used the tree as inspiration for their artwork. Visual artists such as Gustav Kilmt (Tree of Life), Van Gogh (The Mulberry Tree), Georgia O’Keeffe (Lawrence Tree), and Piet Mondrian (Gray Tree) all chose the noble tree as subject matter. We’ll use pressed leaves to make monoprints on translucent paper, and a simple printing block as a plate, capturing the many seasons of the leaf. After making…
