We live in a chaotic world where many are deeply wounded and longing for peace, and the only salve is an encounter and relationship with Jesus, with the Absolute. Drawing from the deep spirituality of the Eastern Church, iconography combines beauty, silence, prayer and contemplation of the Word made Flesh to facilitate this encounter. This 8-week workshop will lead you step-by-step through the process of painting, or "writing", an icon of your Guardian Angel (class may be extended if necessary to complete icon). All material will be provided and you do not need any prior experience or special artistic skill. Come with an open heart to receive whatever Jesus wants to give you through the experience of this prayerful, sacred art form. We will create the image on traditional wood panels with acrylic paints and genuine gold leaf. Registration closed January 25th.
