2,000 Years of Iconography Tradition
During Contemplative Icon Retreats , participants complete painting an icon in egg tempera. The keys for preserving this ancient technique are housed in prayer and spirituality. Your created image when finished lives on as a call to beauty and meditation. Art retreats in Iconography has value in our society because it speaks of the divine, the heart and potential for art to raise our consciousness.
The completion of an icon is an organic and dynamic process. Contemplative Icon art retreats are designed to merge the heart and mind with our contemporary brush strokes. The creation of each icon is a spiritual journey steeped in tradition and culture passed down from the Byzantine Era. The sacred stone, rock and dust of the Earth are full of color and texture that we mix with egg yolk. The act of moving small particles of our planet earth remind us of the beauty of creation and it vast diversity in shape and form. Books available t
