Welcome to Icons By Brenda
Are you in need of a quiet retreat away from the noise and distractions of a busy world?Iconographer and Art Therapist Brenda Fox will take you on a spiritual and artistic journey of silence, prayer and painting as you create a Byzantine style icon from start to finish.
No former art experience necessary!
"Eikon" is Greek for icon which means "Image: A Window into the Divine." Icons are created in prayer for the purpose of prayer which tells the story of Christianity, or the Gospel in paint.
Come away and explore the sacred mysteries of icons. Perhaps you will experience a
breakthrough within yourself that could change the course of your life.

Now it's their turn to practice what they've just observed.
