Icon Writing Workshop: Windows to Heaven
This is a five-day retreat set apart for quiet prayerful creating/writing/painting of an icon in the Russian and Greek Byzantine styles. In quiet community, the group will learn the step-by-step tradition of bringing light out of darkness and order out of chaos. Each person will complete an icon. No experience in art is necessary, just a desire to learn about praying with and creating an icon and being open to God working through you in the process. Components of the workshop include the Eucharist, listening to Gregorian Chants during the painting process, group discussions, and a delicious lunch.
