Church School: The Passion of Christ in Art 9:30 am
Church School: The Passion of Christ in Art
Apr 2 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am
Taught by Sally Molenkamp who spent 10 years while living in DC as a docent at the National Gallery of Art.  While there she became fascinated with how much our understanding of the life of Christ, and religion in general, is defined by artists’ interpretations and, in some cases, fabrications.   The sequence of episodes from the life of Christ which spans the last event of His earthly life from the entry into Jerusalem to the resurrection (known collectively as “The Passion”) occupies a position of central importance in religious art.  Over two Sundays we will experience the events of Holy Week through the eyes of great artists. These works of art have the ability to bewilder, attract, inspire and otherwise move those who view them.
