Christians in the Arts

My wife and I have been discussing this topic for several years. We're recently back to it en force as we try to map out what's next for our family. I hope to be posting more on this topic soon, but for now, here's a link dump of some recent sites I've found:

Along with these more national and international efforts, action is being taken in the Upstate of South Carolina as well:
  • Silver Chair Books - a local book store in Greer, SC is hosting a Christian in the Arts discussion group in the next few weeks.
  • Another group is going to be hosting an presentation on the Transforming Culture symposium this Friday night at Snapshot Café and Art Bar. Details provided by the organizer are below:
    • Where: Snapshot Café and Art Bar
      110 Poinsett Hwy at Rutherford Rd.
      Greenville, SC
    • When: Friday, May 2, 6-7 PM
    • Who: Any Christian in the visual arts. Bring a friend!

Learning by doing...

This quote comes from the development/programming side of my life, but it likely has farther reaching application:

"when you learn something new by using it, the application you build
will contain all the mistakes produced by learning, and you don’t
always get a chance to return and fix those mistakes."
