Iconography Workshop and Retreat 2019

With Fr. Damian Higgins

August 18 - 22, 2019

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 Higgins
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.
