Led by Christine Hales

Friday, July 21 – Sunday, July 23

Learn the Byzantine method of using egg tempera on gessoed panels to paint an icon. Experience this rich spiritual experience through the step by step teaching of iconography taught by artist and iconographer Christine Simoneau Hales. No matter what your art experience, or lack of, you will be skillfully supported and guided through the process of creating your expression of this ancient art form. Christine Hales is a well-loved teacher and iconographer whose icon commissions are at St. Vincent’s Church in Albany, the Spiritual Life Center in Greenwich, NE and many private collections. She has taught icon-writing workshops for over ten years, and her style of icon writing is both contemporary and honors the ancient traditions of iconography. For more information, visit
