Painting Workshop on Color and Form by Steven Assael @ Franciscan Life Process Center
Sep 4 @ 9:00 am – Sep 7 @ 4:00 pm

He will discuss both an analytical and emotive approach to painting the human figure with an emphasis on color and value relationships in a related atmosphere. The class will consist of a single long pose in both cool and warm light. The development of form through an observation and interpretation of plane shifts projecting and receding from the eye will be stressed. Aspects of anatomy, proportion and movement will be discussed along with the development of an Ala Prima technique which involves both scumbling and glazing.

The course will involve lectures, demo’s and critiques on a daily basis.

Something to Say “Yes” To @ Franciscan Life Process Center
Nov 15 @ 6:00 pm – Nov 16 @ 9:15 pm

Attention High Schoolers!
SOMETHING TO SAY “YES” TO
Theology of the Body (TOB)

Theology of the Body (TOB), authored by St. Pope John Paul II, is an awesome way for all of us to understand God’s plan for the living of our Human Sexuality.  Teens’ (and adults’) heads spin in confusion these days as we try to make sense of who we are as sexual beings in relationship with each other and with God.  These three sequenced retreats combine unique, fun experiences that are grounded in solid Catholic teaching, all with the beautiful Franciscan farm in Lowell as our backdrop.

TOB has been collaboratively offered by the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist and a lay team of adults since 2007.  Teens from all parishes are welcome to join us.

For:      Students in grades 9 – 12
Dates:  November 15-16, January 24-25, February 28-29 (students commit to all three weekends)
Time:   Friday 6 PM through Saturday evening 9:15 pm (after Mass)
