The new Christian Artists  Seminar & ARTS Festival July 31st thru August 6th, 2023

After 11 years in Bad Leonfelden we celebrated “ArtCross 2.0” in Marchtrenk, Austria! A Christian Arts Seminar&Festival right on the Market Place in the luxury venue of “Trenks” et al.

A week of 16 professional workshops embedded in an extraordinary program which resembled a Wedding Banquet where Art & Creativity “bended the tables”! It was a splendid time spiritually, emotionally, socially and professionally – happening in a small, but key town in the heart of Upper Austria. 

Rory A. Stephen built a TV studio producing a show&podcast with his workshop students – documenting the fulminant week. Find everything on our youtube channel; start with the founder of Christian Artists Leen La Riviere:
