ECVA strives to support...

 

  • Artists in our community to use their creative gifts for the glory of God.

 

  • Individuals to explore the opportunities that visual arts offer in their spiritual journeys.

 

  • Missions, parishes, and cathedrals to incorporate visual arts in their total programs.

 

  • Conversations and research in issues related to the arts, theology, and culture. 

The     Illuminators:     An     Art     Workshop     for     Pentecost

This is a gallery of the artwork created during the Illuminators workshop.

 

We learned how to draw calligraphy using the double pencil technique and watched Dr. Paula Artac's amazing demonstrations of easy-to-do watercolor techniques.

 

Dr. Artac guided us individually through the process, from conception to completion, and everyone had a blast!
