She is a former lecturer at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and currently the artist in residence at St. Gregory’s Hall where she maintains an active studio of both sacred art commissions and representational paintings.
The Holy Night: Advent Sacred Art Workshop and Retreat
In this Advent Workshop with St Gregory’s Hall artist-in-residence Sarah Crow, participants will create a master copy of a Nativity oil painting by late Baroque artist Carlo Maratta (1625-1713), and enjoy opportunities for common prayer and recollection in St Gregory the Great Church.
This is a unique opportunity to learn Baroque oil painting techniques with one-on-one instruction from a professional artist and art educator, and to produce your own painting of the Holy Night in time for the Christmas season.
Registration is now closed. Please contact Sarah Crow with questions.
