Event description

Description

Join renowned instructor Kara Nelson for an extended weekend workshop in the ancient technique of icon writing.

This process inspires prayerful meditation, both while creating the art and reflecting on the finished piece.

We will learn the process in which we recreate an ancient and sacred image.

Beginners and experienced iconographers will find this course rewarding.

The fee is $825 per person. This includes supplies, as well as all meals, accommodations and much more - Eucharist, prayer, silence and lively conversation, both free and social time.


About Kara Nelson:
"The experience of writing an icon was so powerfully healing and incredibly joy-filled, that I felt compelled to study this ancient and sacred art form further. I became an apprentice to iconographer, Teresa Harrison, assisting at workshops and taking small commissions. Shortly afterwards I was encouraged to step out and teach my own workshops, and I began the work of vocational discernment. I now work full-time as an icon writer and instructor. It is my mission to share the joy of icon writing with others – the joy of community grown through workshops, the joy of the painting process and its deep insights, the joy of being in communion with God and the Saints through prayer and contemplation, and the healing joy of being seen and loved by the God in whose image we were each created."
