FINE ARTS MINISTRY Illuminated manuscript

Sunday May 28, 2017 between services join us in WR-Hall for fun easy ways to fulfill our God given passion for joy in the Spirit. Some supplies and imagery will be provided or bring your own. Calligraphy pens are great! Illumination and scrollwork were used to embellish and adorn the Holy Texts, especially before the Gutenberg Press mid-15th century. Depicting the content helped people connect their emotional, intellectual and spiritual response to the Word.
"The new is in the old concealed; the old is in the new revealed," said St. Augustine. Come explore the same excitement from antiquity or modern work through realism, design, the drawing of what you see or imagine, or simple pattern. In this workshop you will learn how to trace, enlarge or reduce the size of imagery. Bring an 8 x 10” photo copy to work from. Feel free to merely glean the useful information. All are welcome!
