Description

This is a new course for all who are interested in exploring mainly contemporary art from a variety of sources including the prestigious Methodist Modern Art Collection. The course writer is Sarah Middleton, a freelance arts educator, Methodist Local Preacher and co-author of the ecumenically-produced ‘Creative Spirit’ DVD resource.

This course is for you if you are:

  • wanting to reflect on visual art that can enhance our prayers and services of worship
  • looking to develop skills in interpreting works of art in the context of doing theology
  • a church leader seeking opportunities to work with or commission practising artists

We will look at:

  • what is meant by so-called ‘Christian art’
  • using images effectively, respecting good practice in reproducing them.
  • Cubist, Expressionist and Indian influences through a painter in the Methodist Modern Art Collection, and a drawing by renowned English artist Sir Stanley Spencer
  • carved wood and mixed media work inspired by global events, the natural landscape and New Testament narrative, with a focus on the passion and resurrection of Jesus.

The course runs for 6 weeks from 21st January 2019.
