Icon Writing Retreat

October 22, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - October 24, 2014 @ 4:00 pm

$330

Led by Patricia Miranda Founder and Gallery Director, Miranda Fine Arts, Port Chester, New York.www.patriciamiranda.com

Icons are holy images, theology in line and color. Come and explore an active form of meditative prayer by creating an icon with your own hand. Each step in the process  of the “writing” of an icon — materials, preparation  and technique —offers an opportunity for spiritual  growth. Through the tradition of copying an image passed down through the centuries, we stand on the shoulders of all who came before, and the Holy Spirit moves through our hands. Panels will be created using time-honored techniques and natural materials, with spiritual deepening as the guiding force. Participants will take home a beautiful sacred image made with 22k gold leaf, red clay, and mineral pigments ground with the yolk of an egg.

Artistic background is not necessary; all hands can create beauty. Work will be copied in the traditional manner.

Everyone is welcome! Come with an open heart.
