St. Luke's Youth Guild (Catholic Studies and Art History Majors)

My name is Jess Ferro and I will be starting my Masters this fall in the Catholic Studies program.  I am the founder of a new classical art history program for elementary students, St. Luke's Youth Guild, that will be starting this fall.  St. Luke's Youth Guild will be located at St. Mark's Catholic Church, only a few blocks away from campus.  It will be serving homeschooling students, along with school students through an after school component. 

Over the course of 5 weeks in October, with meetings once each week, the Guild will introduce students to Medieval art, from the Viking art of the "Dark Ages" through to the Gothic cathedrals of the High Middle Ages.  In preparing for the upcoming session I am seeking volunteers who enjoy working with children and perhaps might have an interest in helping foster the arts through a Catholic lens.  The homeschooling sessions will be on Wednesdays and Fridays of the month of October and the school sessions will most likely be once a month (details on the school session are still being finalized).

If spending two hours a week with awesome 7-12 year olds looking at beautiful art and getting your hands a little messy with art projects sounds fun, please email me :)  Also, if you're interested, please let me know if you happen to be VIRTUS trained, and if you're not there are sessions coming up so it wouldn't be a problem to get you trained.  Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!
