Mike Newton-Ward

Join Mike Newton-Ward as we explore drawing what God’s vision is for you. Practice seeing deeply, and then drawing - and drawing as a playful co-creation with God. We will use techniques such as Zentangles - a centering, meditative practice. Explore the grounds of Valle Crucis and capture the wonder of nature through art.

Mike Newton-Ward has thoroughly enjoyed tapping into his creative self since retirement from social marketing management for the State of NC Department of Health & Human Services. He began taking various classes through Raleigh Parks and Rec, as well as playing on his own. He enjoys drawing in numerous media, metal work, art history, and block printing.
