An icon is a valuable spiritual aid in prayer, meditation, and contemplation. Learn the ancient art of Byzantine Icon ‘writing’ using classical painting methods of transfer drawing, egg tempera laying, and gold leaf guilding. In residence for the week at Casa del Sol, in an atmosphere of prayer and meditation, you will encounter the experience of praying and painting an Icon that is at once refreshing and captivating. You do not have to be an artist! Step by step instruction with demonstrations will gently and joyfully shepherd you through the process.
