November 8-19, 2021

Taught by Bill Donaghy

What's Included:

This online course will use St. John Paul II’s Letter to Artists as its primary source material, in addition to the Theology of the Body addresses, as well as Pope Benedict XVI’s Address to Artists – 2009, and Evangelii Guadium by Pope Francis and the Via Pulchritudinis by Pope Benedict XVI. In addition to reflective readings, there will be a direct and focused gaze on classical and modern works of art of various mediums, primarily painting and sculpture, but not excluding poetry, music, and cinema. The heart of this course will be the invitation for students to “walk the Way of Beauty” as a path leading to God, and to see Beauty as a key to evangelizing others into an encounter with God.

How Does the Online Course Work?


  • Access to Course

    Registrants for this online TOB and Art course, will receive access to a filmed version of our in-person 5-day TOB and Art: The Way of Beauty course and a digital course workbook from November 8-19, 2021

  • Course Set Up

    The videos are from a previously recorded in-person TOB and Art. You can watch them on your own schedule, but we suggest committing 3 hours per day in order to get through all of the material. You will not have access to the videos beyond the end date of the course.

  • Resources and Direction

    Each video session is complete with the resources used in the course, as well as directions for helping to make this online course, not only intellectually stimulating, but also spiritually fruitful.

  • Live Group Q&A Sessions

    There will be live, one-hour, group Q&A sessions provided during that two-week period for all students who wish to participate. They will be held at either 1:30 PM or 7:00 PM EDT on their designated day. Details about dates and times of the sessions will be provided in an email you will receive after registering. Christopher West, Bill Donaghy, or Jen Settle will host the live sessions. These group sessions will be recorded for those students who cannot make the designated times and will be accessible through the online course portal.

  • Steps to Certification Program

    Full participation in this course counts towards Certification and the Master’s Degree Programs. Students who wish to attend another course with TOBI or enter into the TOBI Certification Program, must watch all of the videos and complete a multiple choice exam at the end of the course. A passing grade of 80% is required for the exam.
