Week-Long Workshops

Attending a week-long intensive workshops is the ultimate experience of
the Sacred Art Institute on Enders Island.

Our week-long workshops last five consecutive days beginning with a 5:30 pm dinner on Sunday night for students and instructors. The Sunday evening program continues with an introduction, a conference, and a brief period of studio time which ends at 9:30 pm. Hands-on instruction begins mid-morning on Monday following the 9 am Mass. The week concludes with a 12:00 pm lunch on Friday.

Instruction reaches 40 hours during a week-long program and workshops are paced so that participants leave with a finished work of art or final recording. During Friday morning Mass, a priest will bless students' artwork before departure.

We provide participants with comfortable overnight accommodations, high-quality and delicious meals, and full use of the Institute facilities. Commuters are also welcome to participate in our programs.

Mass is offered daily in the beautiful Chapel of Our Lady of the Assumption, which features the sacred artwork of several of the masters who have taught at the Institute.
