Icon WritingAn icon is a valuable spiritual aid in prayer, meditation, and contemplation. Learn the ancient art of Byzantine Icon writing using classical painting methods of transfer drawing, egg tempera laying, and gold leaf gilding. In an atmosphere of prayer and meditation, you will encounter the experience of praying and painting an Icon that is at once refreshing and captivating. You do not have to be an artist! Step by step instruction with demonstrations will gently and joyfully shepherd you through the process. Return home with your completed Icon and sacred memories.

In Icon writing, we bring the invisible world of God’s faith and power into our own time and space through prayer and meditation combined with painting.  The evocative nature of natural pigments and gold leaf bestow a beauty that cannot be achieved any other way!”
“The icon writing class proved to be much more than just a painting class.  It was an extended meditation offering a place of respite from all the demands of life. However, as a painting class it was exceptional.  I learned more about classical drawing and painting technique than I learned in any other art class I’ve ever taken, and that is a testament to the talent and experience of the instructor.”  Karen L., A Recent Icon Student
