Alan Storkey

Most of us have art and poetry inside us. It reflects who we are in the image of a creative God. For centuries, Christian art and poetry has suffused Europe, often brilliantly expressing the faith. We’ll be dipping into the greats, especially Michelangelo, Durer, Rembrandt, Blake, Rouault, John Milton, George Herbert, John Donne and T.S. Eliot, as they paint the Christian faith in image and word. And we’ll look at the challenges of art for us today, as we have a go ourselves at acknowledging the greatness of the Creator in poetry or painting. Bring paints, pencil and imagination. Alan is an artist and art historian. He’ll be sharing some of his own paintings and creation poetry.
