Spirituality Through the Art of Icons

Saturday, March 25, 2017 -
9:00am to 12:00pm

In the Eastern Catholic tradition icon painters are known as writers. This is because the icon artist, who works within a specific framework, visually describes Christian theology and prayer through the “words” of shape and color. This class is about the theological and spiritual meaning behind icons.

We will discuss the history of this artform, its symbology, its nature and its purpose. The knowledge will then be put into practice by creating a drawing of an icon and applying gold leaf to highlight the symbolic and sacred nature of the artform.

Facilitator: Katie Osenga is an art and religion teacher at Salesian College Preparatory in Richmond, California. She received her Ph.D. in Art History and Religious Studies at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, a MA in Theology and Art from the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology, and a BFA in painting and drawing from the University of San Francisco and the Art Academy University.

This lecture includes hands-on icon drawing.
$25 from 9:00 a.m. - noon at the NEW Dominican Center Art Room.
