Welcome to Sacred Illuminations Iconography Retreats
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.

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