November 10 – 16, 2018

Join renowned instructor Teresa Harrison for a course in the ancient technique of icon writing. This process inspires prayerful meditation, both while creating the art and reflecting on the finished piece. This six-day retreat includes Eucharist, chant, prayer, silence and lively conversation, free time and social hours. Icons will be written in acrylic paint and gold leaf, a medium which resembles traditional egg tempera. Beginners and experienced iconographers will find this course rewarding.
