Sacred Art Workshop: Catacomb Paintings

Sacred Art students learned about the early Christian art found in the underground catacombs in Rome.  They identified common symbols (anchor, peacock, chi-rho, dove, fish) and discovered their meaning and significance.  Each student painted a tile using inspiration from these early Christian symbols and students worked by candle light, just like the early Christians!
