1Icon Writing Retreat with Jody Cole, BA Theater and Art
The sacred craft of icon writing draws upon art and religion that combine in a prayer of the hands. Icons are windows to heaven, the created works are symbols of looking into the heavenly realm, communicating with a person, and uniting our prayers to heaven. Jody Cole presents this popular retreat again this summer, leading participants in a prayerful and reflective study into the practice of iconography. Jody mentors participants gently and caringly as they begin their artistic endeavors or continue to develop their skills in this classical religious art form. Jody has studied with seven iconographers over the years, and she has conducted icon writing workshops and retreats for over twenty years. The cost for this retreat includes all necessary art supplies. Suggested offering: $495.00.
The 5-night workshop begins on Sunday evening with supper at 6:00pm and concludes on Friday with lunch. Check-in time is 4:00pm to 6:00pm on Sunday. Accommodations are in private rooms with private baths. Offering: $495.00. Included in the cost are all meals, drink service throughout the day, and all materials and art supplies needed to produce an icon.
