    Course Description: This is a new and exciting course this year! Creative Bible Journaling for creatives and creative people, or for those wanting to grow their faith in creative ways! No drawing experience needed. I started bible journaling around 2014. As I grew more confident in the process I felt the Lord prompt me to start a bible journaling FB page where I shared what God was revealing to me during my pastor’s Sunday message—other’s join me or visited for encouragement. This process came to me during a time when I was struggling to absorb the message on Sundays, but Bible Journaling allowed me to connect with the word in a brand new way! Drawing or lettering God’s word helps us retain and deepen it into our heart and spirit—the process can be relaxing and meditative. It’s a wonderful way to experience God and the bible. I will be guiding you through how to draw inspiration from scripture, what stands out to you in a verse, and how to approach creatively what the Lord is communicating to you as we dive in to verses. We’ll go over lettering styles as well. There are several bibles with a single lined column where you can draw, a limited bible list with a full blank page (interleaved) for drawing larger illustrations, or you can use a journaling notebook with no lines. Be sure to choose a bible translation version you enjoy. Below is a list of supplies needed. I will have some additional supplies available for you to play with.

In addition she attended local community schools expanding her art skills and mediums.  A mentorship with a Disney Imagineer kickstarted her career in sculpting for Disney and Universal Studios.  Since then she's explored other art forms while raising her children. Inspired by children's literature, she took to creative writing.

    Florbela appreciates real life experiences and exploring art on a personal level, without pressure just opportunity, and meeting young children to adults wherever they are on their art journey. Her teaching style focuses on inspiring students by encouraging them to have fun and try something new—she guides, makes suggestions and emphasizes the importance of learning how to observe. Florbela has been known to add other elements of study to her class, if she feels there’s a need to cover something which would benefit students. Through her visual art classes, and real life application, students will start to see how they can use their skills in the real world. The skills they learn in art class and the topics covered in class, can help them get a better understanding of what it means to be an artist. Whether art to them is a means of relaxation from a stressful world. If art to them is a spiritual observation of God’s creation through their God given gifts. Or what art career choices are available as they play with designs possibly used for fabric and textiles; teaching; art historians; life as a studio artist; book illustrators; sculptors; or a platform for graphic art.
