About the Workshop:
Byzantine Iconography is a highly structured and disciplined art form which combines prayer and painting techniques to create serene images of Christ, Mary, the angels and the saints following centuries old guidelines. This workshop will be capped at 20 individuals. No previous experience or natural talent is required. The group will write an icon of St. Joseph by following the simple step-by-step instructions and prayer in a contemplative environment.
To register please contact the Parish Office.
