Live stage art, interactive paintings and break-out art sessions allow you to tap into creativity. This page will help you get connected to our current sites, blogs, and tutorials. You can always check out our posts on the Encouragement Cafe Facebook page. Please consider having one of us at your next event. Learn more about booking Betty, Lisa or Noelle.
Noelle has been a public speaker for over 20 years, starting in the corporate world, and moving into faith-based soon after. She speaks from her own life experiences, most often "leading with her weaknesses." She believes in humor. She believes in "real." And she believes that God has all the answers to overcome any problem we're facing. As a stage artist and teacher, she seeks to dynamically engage and challenge her audiences in creative ways that promote positive life change, and a deeper, richer faith. Her mission is to empower others with biblical principals in fresh, relevant ways. Stage painting and “out-of-the-box” delivery mark her style.
Betty 'B' Shoopman, is a gifted stage artist whose stirring transformative paintings take viewers on a spiritual journey. Betty is the "original" stage artist for Encouragement Cafe and has been a part of the events from its inception. She enjoys stage painting for a variety of events, facilitating 'hands on' retreats and group sessions to "Paint Your Heart Out," and is currently illustrating her own book and teaching art in her studio in Florida.
Quite simply, because God, the original Creator gave us this universal language of art that speaks loudly, yet uniquely to each soul. It draws us, artist and viewer alike, deeper and closer to Him. Our Savior is compelling us to tap into a dynamic explosion of worship and surrender and we encourage you to join us.
We invite you in. Artist or not, it doesn't matter. We DARE you to SEE (with intention) what God is whispering to your heart. Beauty matters to God. It shines light, and reflects His glory. The "colors" of His deep love and life-breathing truths stand in protest of darkness. May God minister to you intimately through art.
