Art by Heart is a Visual Arts Ministry "passionately welcoming and serving Creation with Christ's Love" at Resurrection Lutheran Church in Tucson, Arizona. Its mission is to share the love and joy in creating beautiful visual art for the church and community. Art by Heart's vision is to continue supporting Resurrection Lutheran Church and to offer artful opportunities that serve the community.
Art by Heart was started in 2009. It's first project was to complete inspirational ceramic tile murals along the Prayer/Meditation Path on church grounds. The path is a place of peace; a place of worship. A series of five murals has been completed to answer the five interrogatives: who, what, where, when and why. The Interrogative Series was completed in December of 2012. A sixth element was added, the Alpha and Omega (beginning and end), yet to be completed.
Beginning January 2010 Art by Heart started Ceramics classes for beginners and returning ceramic artists. The ministry now has a fully operational Ceramics studio. Its ministry creates ceramic works that mark life changes from birth to passing.
Art by Heart added a Boutique in 2012, which is open one Sunday each month and is open to the public. Works created during Art by Heart's Open Studio time are donated to the Boutique which helps support the ministry. Some of the works (also consigned) are donated or have portions donated to other charities. During 2012, Art by Heart also added more classes in glass, painting and other art disciplines.
Art by Heart welcomes all faiths and denominations to participate in the ministry and attend classes offered in clay, glass, painting and more. Won't you join us?
