Iconography Workshop and Retreat 2020
With Fr. Damian Higgins
August 23 - 27, 2020
Fr. Damian will introduce participants to the history, spirituality and techniques of traditional Byzantine Iconography. Each student will be provided with all the materials and supplies to complete an icon in the egg-tempera method, using all natural pigments and 23K Gold leafing. While no previous art experience is necessary, more accomplished iconographers are welcome.
Fr. Damian of Holy Transfiguration Monastery has been painting icons for his own monastery and for churches and homes around the world for the last 27 years. He began teaching the process at the request of those who felt drawn to the depth and beauty of an art form and wanted to understand more about the spirituality and theology.
