Develop your faith
The Certificate in Catholic Art (CCA) course is designed to introduce and inspire an interest in Catholic Art, assisting in the development of knowledge and understanding of the place of culture, art and beauty within a Catholic perspective. It is for anyone who has, or who wishes to develop, an interest in this area. No previous knowledge or expertise is required, simply an interest in the subject. The course includes a foundation in the core knowledge of the Catholic perspective on God as artist and creator; it looks at some of the best (and lesser) known Christian religious paintings across a diverse range and also, to a smaller degree, architectural, sculptural and other art forms. Students undertake three modules, completing a workbook and assignment for each module.
This is a 1 Year, 3 module programme.
The course starts at the Centre at the end of October 2021 with a 3 hour introduction to the course and lecture on the first module, an opportunity to meet lecturers and other students and an opportunity to ask questions relating to areas such as Moodle, assignments and so on.
