Arts Collective


The arts expand our capacity to encounter God. The role of the WH Arts Collective is to invite artists to use their gifts of color, form, sound and word to foster these meaningful encounters and to cultivate communal experiences that draw us near to God and each other.

The Arts Collective was formed in 2009, and our Kiln events were the first expression of this ministry. We are working on other ways to nurture Woodland Hills artists in their art/faith journey and to integrate more art into the WH experience. We will post opportunities on this page as well as on our Facebook page. Please contact us if you have ideas you’d like to help with (info below), and make sure to get on our mailing list!

We are hosting another Cultivate class this spring and registration is now open. This will be a four week series that will be a great way to connect with other WH creatives and find out how you can become more involved.

Image Bearers: How is Art a Gift, a Calling, and an Obedience

WH Arts Collective is hosting a four-part discussion series centered around the theme of how art is a gift, a calling and an obedience. Through small group discussions and interviews with artists, we will explore design, community, and culture-making through the lens of the cross and journey together on our way to becoming aesthetic Christ-followers.

Day: Tuesdays, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Dates: April 22 – May 13 (4 Weeks)
Cost: No Fee
Class Instructor: Facilitated by Gregg Ward and Alyssa Whiting / Guest Speakers

Child care is provided for children birth through fifth grade.
