Icon Writing Workshop: “The Unsleeping Eye”
Sun, Apr 23, 2017, 7:00 PM – Sat, Apr 29, 2017, 10:00 AM CDT
A meaningful prayer practice and a technical art form, iconography has been a vital part of Eastern Christian worship since the beginning of Christianity. ”The Unsleeping Eye,” an icon of Christ depicted as a small child asleep on a bed, shows Christ as the eternal God who neither slumbers nor sleeps. It serves to remind us that God continually watches over us. Barbara, a learned iconographer, will guide participants through the step-by-step process of “writing” or painting an icon, following ancient guidelines while using modern artist’s materials. By the end of the week students will have a beautifully completed icon.
