Welcome to the Sacred Art Institute at Enders Island.
Here, students of the fine arts can participate in an immersive, hands-on learning experience of the sacred arts in the Catholic tradition. The Mission of the Sacred Art Institute is to study and teach artistic expression, to preserve our heritage and to create fine sacred art while promoting the highest standards of excellence.
All of our workshops and classes can be taken for personal enrichment, with an official certificate awarded upon completion of the course. Our workshops are a wonderful opportunity to continue your education in order to fulfill the continuing education requirements of your school, employer, or organization.
With our diverse offerings and our talented faculty, the Sacred Art Institute is also the perfect environment for your child’s artistic talents to blossom while enjoying a fun, island atmosphere. We welcome homeschool groups during the regular school year and between sessions. We are also able to work with your organization to create a tailored offering. Below, you can explore our scheduled offerings in greater detail.

Workshops and Courses
All our workshops are grounded in the theology of sacred art. Each is specially designed to teach the history and techniques of the discipline in a way that is both accessible to the beginner and challenging for the experienced artist. Because we limit enrollments and employ only select instructors with significant experience, we are able to accommodate participation at all levels of proficiency. All our workshops are paced so that participants leave with a finished work of art.
