Every summer Image Journal hosts a workshop for artists of all disciplines called the Glen Workshop. Of course, calling it a "workshop" is a wee bit reductive, it's more like a workshop/retreat/conference/arts festival, but that makes for a long title. Below is their introductory blurb on the workshop from the folks at Image Journal. Info on all the courses available on the site.
The Glen Workshop, sponsored by Image journal, is an innovative and enriching program combining the best elements of a workshop, an arts festival, and a conference. Daily classes, taught by nationally known authors and artists, offer close attention to artists of all levels. Afternoons and evenings feature readings, lectures, concerts, and worship services incorporating the arts. Like its sponsor, Image, the Glen is grounded in a Christian perspective, but its tone is informal and hospitable to all spiritual wayfarers.
