About promoting a workshop, in the beautiful retreat center called The Jubilee House, In Abingdon, Virginia, July 16 to July 20 2018. This 5 day workshop introduces the practice and theory of traditional icon painting/writing, offered as a meditation as well as a painting class.
Mary Jane Miller has 20 years of experience as a master iconographer and teacher of ancient iconography using the medium of egg tempera. Icon painting and their images potentially reveal our thoughts about God and ourselves in the world. One main goal of the practice is to cultivate a clear and conscious icon image that becomes a lasting window to the divine.
No artistic experience is necessary for the workshop.
There has been an increased interest in icon painting around the world. Classic Modern Catholic or Orthodox Iconography offers an encouraging new dimensions to spiritual life through study and a new revived focus on faith.
Mary Jane will open the Workshop with a slide lecture being help at William King Art Center Abingdon, Virginia. LECTURE 2PM Touching the Sacred.
