Creativity Week at the Lodge


  • Laity Lodge Retreat Center 11756 NORTH U.S. HWY 83 Leakey, TX (map)

This summertime classic runs nearly a week (Tue.-Sat.) and is designed to emphasize the arts and crafts. Each day will begin with a morning meditation with Murray Watts followed by a day of creating. Guests will select from multiple workshops including ceramics, painting, woodworking, printmaking, acting, and jewelry-making. We may even make lanyards! The evening program will vary from day to day and will include classical performances from our very own house quartet.

Absolutely no sort of artist credentials needed! The retreat is intended to serve people of all levels and abilities (even self-professed “non-artists”).
