"The technique side of artwork is not only a lot of fun, but also relatively easy to teach and relatively easy to learn. However, often the question is not how to do artwork, but what to do artwork about or why do artwork at all? We are wired as human beings to search for meaning in our lives and so also in our artwork. I’ve been lucky enough to learn to see in other people’s writing an expression of what I was feeling and then find ways to translate those feelings into my own artwork. I’ve discovered, in other words, my own artistic voice in other people’s language." 

Join Lendon Hamilton Noe on an examination of some of your favorite poets to find artistic inspiration, motivation, ideas, imagery, and new depths of meaning.

This retreat will take place at St. Mary's Sewanee: The Ayres Center for Spiritual Development. For more information about St. Mary's Sewanee, please visit our website at
