Event description

Description

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.

No experience necessary. All materials and supplies are included.

Bring an apron and wear comfortable clothing and shoes.

Fee: Resident $650 includes the workshop, private room in shared cabin and all needs. Commuters $475.

Call 715-385-3750 to register by Wednesday, March 21; include $100 deposit (refundable if cancelled by March 21).

Limit of 8.
