Anchorage ‘icon workshop’ set for Aug. 9
Anchorage residents will soon have a chance to make sacred art during an upcoming icon workshop at Holy Rosary Academy.
The Aug. 9 event is open to all ages and will be taught by long-time Catholic school art teachers Margaret Mackie and Carol Mackie Morris. The two sisters maintain a website, ArtCrossings.com, which explains their approach to “visually spreading the gospel message through art.”
Their work and that of their students have been featured on the cover of St. Anthony Messenger, at the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center in Washington, D.C. and in a number of other exhibits.
Margaret Mackie teaches Art at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the Baltimore Archdiocese and Carol Mackie Morris teaches Art at nearby Saint Michael’s School Ridge.
The upcoming icon workshop in Anchorage will run from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Aug. 9. Space is limited to 25 participants and those interested should RSVP by calling Holy Rosary Academy at 276-5822.
The subject of the workshop will be creating an icon of the Blessed Mother.
Carol and I are teaching an metal embossed icon, during our first week in Anchorage. We are very excited to share and teach our love of art and faith.
