St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church is offering an Icon Writing Workshop:from August 5-9, 2019. During this 5-day retreat, iconographer and instructor, Kara Nelson, will lead participants in the prayerful practice of “writing” a Byzantine style icon. Instruction is step-by-step, following traditional painting processes using acrylic paints and 23-carat gold in order to recreate sacred images which have been used for centuries to draw people deeply into prayer and worship. All materials are supplied and no previous art experience is necessary. Tuition is $395 and includes all materials, lunches, and snacks each day. Enrollment is limited to 15.
