The Dordt AIGA Student Group is very pleased to announce that Dean R. Heetderks, will discuss his work as a designer and art director on Thursday, November 5, 2009 in the Art Department’s room 1223 at 7 p.m. For over twenty years Heetderks has served the Christian Reformed Church of North America as Creative Director and Director of CRC Proservices. He also serves as Art Director of The Banner magazine and Reformed Worship, a quarterly journal. Heetderks has authored some three dozen articles on the visual arts in worship, which have appeared in Reformed Worship since the publication began.

On Friday, November 6 at 10 a.m. to 10:50 in the Digital Media Lab, room 1310 he will attend the web design class and talk about design, function and the user. There will be a Q and A during the session.

In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin, Dordt College presents
The Calvin, Worship, and the Arts Workshop on Saturday, November 7, 2009.

During the conference, Dean will be a sectional leader presenting the topic, Out of a Heritage of Visual Austerity into a Culture of Visual Density: The Visual Arts in Worship. The conference brochure says this about Heetderk’s sectional: Art. Our worship spaces finally accommodate it, our membership is calling for it, and we can’t wait to get started. But how do we approach the visual arts in worship to ensure that we don’t fall into the traps John Calvin was trying to guide us safely past? In this session, through examples and practical tips, we’ll try to define and refine the proper place that art has in worship.

The Calvin, Worship, and the Arts Workshop is sponsored by Dordt’s Andreas Center.
