You will learn the ancient way of prayer and contemplation through the art of "writing" an icon. No former art experience necessary! Brenda will walk you through a step by step process of learning to create an icon from start to finish. During this process, you will learn about the history and purpose of icons. Brenda works in acrylic, teaching the Russian style of iconography.
Iconography retreats consist of approximately 16-24 hours of painting in silence and prayer. Icons can be completed in 3 to 4 days. Class sizes can vary from 6 to 24 students. To set up a workshop in your parish, town, church or retreat center, please go to the "Contact Brenda" tab and fill in your information.
