Icon Writing with 

Kara Nelson, Iconographer

 

Prayerful meditation & the ancient technique of creating icons.

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, The Mother of God of Tenderness, using acrylic paints and 23-carat gold. Through silence and sharing, work and rest, prayers and meals, we create a unique community, and together invite the Holy Spirit to work in and through us as we paint this holy image.

 

Icons are visual representations of invisible realities meant to help us understand spiritual truths and aid in worship and prayer. Beginners and experienced iconographers will find this course rewarding.

 

The fee is $825 per person. This includes all supplies for painting as well as all meals, accommodations and much more – prayer, silence and lively conversation, free time and social hours. Retreat Chaplain- The Rev. Dr. Jenny Montgomery, Trinity Newtown.
