"The vision for this design was that it would embody the process of creation--which is a beautiful process of beginning with nothing and ending with something. But to truly create from nothing is something only our Creator God can do. the Latin term Creatio Ex Creatis means "Created From Creation" and that is how we as artists now create. We are constantly being first inspired by by the sky, the sea, the trees, and the people around us. We create Ex Creatis because everything we make is inspired by his creations and also must come from the hands and the eyes that he first made for us. Ex Creatis is the Arts Initiative at Saddleabck Church and we are a gathering of artists who desire to inspire a culture of creativity and imagination in our communities."
