Create-A-Day: your daily dose of creativity #42 — The Worship Studio


Worship StudioIntroducing The Worship Studio, an equipping resource for artists, a hub for creative communities, and a catalyst for creativity around the world, founded by Matt Tomney, an amazing artist with a passion for connecting artists. Matt offers a wide variety of resources and tools through his website. We won’t reveal all of them today!  😉

One offering is the Equipping Center, an online training vehicle that provides access to videos, blogs, articles, classes, webinars and other resources for $20/month (one month trial is free).

Another is connecting fellow Christian artists through a Network of Creative Communities with groups meeting around the world. You might want to see if there’s a community in your area with which you can connect.

If you are a Facebook user, Matt is very active on The Worship Studio Facebook group, linking you to other artists, keeping you alerted to the many offerings of the Worship Studio, and posting pictures of his BEaUtiful hand-woven baskets, as well as words of encouragement to keep you focused on what’s really important!

Many of you know Matt is the author of a great book for artists—but we’ll save that resource for another time. In the meantime, check out The Worship Studio—raising up artists to reveal God’s glory!

Blessings of ARTistry, CREATivity & BEaUty, Jody

What is Create-A-Day?  Just as One-A-Day® Vitamins help restore the nutrients we deplete in our bodies, so too do we need to refill, replenish and renew our creative souls. In 2015, watch for daily* posts to undergird your ministry; lead you to resources to nurture the creative spirit within; and draw you more deeply in worship of Jesus Christ. My goal is to provide you, the creative Christian, with over 250* resources to help you develop your ARTistry, CREATivity & capacity for BEaUty. Books, worship arts ministries, video series, websites, conferences—all geared towards artists, creatives, worshipers and people serving in worship and creative arts ministries. So, visit my blog every day* to see what creative resource I’ve hunted down for you. You can stay connected by following me on Twitter or Facebook. Or better yet, sign up to receive email updates by clicking the button to the left. We’ll watch the resources pile up as the year unfolds!

* I am a proponent of family time and Sabbath rest so don’t look for posts on weekends or Holidays.
